My friends know about my bead addiction (it is hard to hide it!) and they sometimes bring me beads as a present when they have been abroad. Those are often beads that I would not choose myself. But the funny thing is that they inspire me to bead different things than I would normally do, which is great!
I named this necklace after the friend who brought me these tiny dagger beads. Thanks very much Sharon. And my darling niece Julia was willing to pose for this necklace.
