Isn't it spectacular?
Serena is a project in Beaded Opulence, one of my favorites! I have a double wide black one as well.
And speaking of books, the publisher usually gets a preview copy of a new book. Beads in Motion came last week. It appears it turned out excellent....Lot's of fun pieces to bead, some whimsical, some elegant,all wearable.
It will release in early August and I look forward to seeing which pieces you fall in love with.
