and while it was fun it was harder to make than I thought it would be.

vintage and new beads
crystals
buttons
lace bits, yarn and blueberry stained strips.

Oh my goodness...this is a spectacular accent piece to wear all year round. I can see it peeking out from a soft sweater and worn with jeans or velvets. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

This is a lovely piece of creative work with an "old world feeling" about it. Very sweet and would look lovely with all my work too.
Your altered journal is gorgeous!
