What advice would you give someone starting this project? Enjoy the process. I discovered there are no rules for beadwork. Go where the beads lead you.

I use E-3000 glue which I buy at Wal-Mart. I find it works better than epoxy. Use this glue to attach the cabochons and gemstone beads to the bead backing. I use Elmer's white glue to attach the ultra suede backing to the beaded backing.

This piece is simply AMAZING. I just saw your feature in the Fire Mountain Newsletter and this piece took my breath away in it. I just had to find more work by you!

Thank you, Amanda. I love doing beadwork. I have learned there are no rules for beadwork. If you can think it, you can make it.
