  5. This is a very beautiful necklace Janice. I am new to your site but have looked at every one of your creations and I simply love the wearable art you create and inspire others to create. Thank you so much for your tutorials as I have used them to begin making my own beads. I am still learning and working on getting it right. Practice, practice and then practice some more.
