One of my masters, Sharon Borsavage, offered me a beautiful bead, it is the focal of this new necklace.. not totaly my style, but inspired by Sharon and Japan

New tools are so much fun. I wonder what you were using before you got this simple doming block? And the beauty that you are able to create so easily is a marvel. You are divine, Miss Esther!
Enjoy the day!

Your earrings are soooo cute with the little balls at the end and the wonderful colours you gave on them. The necklace, even if it is not really your style is well done too.

Esther, looks like you're having so much fun already with that doming block. I have one but keep forgetting to get it out. Your earrings are just gorgeous...and so is that wonderful necklace you created with Sharon's bead. Is it carnelian? I love how you used it as a focal and link... :-)
