i think this is the first i've used shiny beads in about two years. obviously, i have a real fondness for matte glass, but these beads (along with the others i bought with them) won me over with their cute colors and shapes. i'd been playing with this little flounce design and used it for a group of necklaces i'll be listing soon, so on saturday, i was still in flounce mode and thought i'd try it with my new beads. i'm really pleased with how it came out. i never list a necklace i wouldn't love to wear myself and this is no exception. lördagsgodis no. 29 will be in the shop just after midnight on saturday.
