It's always amazing how the customer that asks for something that I don't make and makes me feel like pulling out my hair, ends up getting my creative mojo going again. For the past several days, her request has got me thinking about new designs and using different techniques. So "thank you" new customer.

Using super fine beading needles that can cause you to go blind, I have been hand sewing on little seed beads and other more eye friendly beads. Here's a sneak peek of my creation in progress. I'll keep you posted.
