This is lovely! It's movement and organic lines remind me of a plant we have in Vancouver, Canada. It's a shrub with small white berries in winter. I would have called it "Winter Berries" for this reason. It's also nice because of the way the sizes of the 2 round bead shapes are so are so nicely balanced with the size of the round stitches. Very pretty! Question, please: I've stayed away from handmade jewelry because other than surgical steel I can only where solid silver & gold (I strip plate, seriously). Silver wire is a nightmare to clean, especially when tangled/knit/crocheted, and dipping it would eventually (if not immediately) damage the other materials. Gold is, well, expensive! Is there an option for ppl like me? Is there such a thing as surgical steel wire? I only ask because you have SO inspired me! Thank you!

HappyGenny, Thanks for your comment! Let me ask around to see if there is surgical steel wire. Will leave a reply here if there is.
