Worth every minute...

My mom was unsure what to get me this year for my birthday. So I told her to pay for a class for me at the Bead Shop. I very rarely ever take a class but when this one was offered I jumped on it! I don't know how to do a lot with needles and thread and beads but I was eager to learn. Here's the result:

I love it! Made with Platinum colored Swarovski Pearls, Mocca and Light Colorado Topaz Swarovski Crystals, and a boat load of seed beads. The class was 5 hours long and I am so thrilled with the result!

Here's a close up view of all the detail. I chose neutral colors, go figure... but some of the other ladies had these vibrant colorful bracelets. They were all so pretty! I have already purchased the materials to make more. Blue is next (for Ann) because she always says "Where's Mine?" whenever I make something new! LOL! I also got some brown pearls and Rose Champagne crystals to make a brown and pink combo. Oh and Black and White too... stay tuned for those!

This is a view from the back side. Not bad! It's even pretty from this angle. It was funny during each phase of creating this beautiful piece, we were all saying how cool it looked without going any further! But the end result was So worth every minute that I put into it!
Thanks Mom and Dad for this awesome Birthday present!
