never to be duplicated

at least not by me. Not any time soon.
  I absolutely love the way this necklace came out  but it was the biggest pain in the butt. Granted, I have to fight the urge to be a perfectionist and sometimes I lose,  like with the components of this necklace. Which means a lot of the time consuming part was me tearing out  and re-doing the seed bead parts. (Seed beads. I hate them but I am addicted to them. Go figure.)
This necklace started with the focal made by Juls of JulsBeads (if you've been around a while, you know I am also addicted to her work or should I say her art) Each one of her beads is a work of art and whenever I make a piece of jewelry that contains her beads I always feel like it "needs to be worthy". That's when the perfectionist kicks in. 
I had a vision of the finished piece before I started and this came pretty close. I like it☺
