I am frequently amazed at how good some absolute beginners are. I almost want to squint my eyes and look squarely at the beader and ask "Have YOU done this before?"

Well, Amy may just found herself a new hobby after her first attempt at making this elegant set. She used mainly round glass pearls for the bracelet in a purple and pale buff-pink colour combination. She expanded on that design theme, incorporating just the right number and shape of purply-pink beads to her necklace. The same light coloured glass pearls also turn up along with clear faceted rondelle beads.

This example shows it's often not the individual beads but how they are put together that matters.
