Love this piece, but finding the right beads to make an eye catching design proved trickier than expected. Finally did find a good match. Makes a good focal for the right beads. Although, I was a little disappointed that it wasn''''t a spectacular as what I really wanted. The blue and the gold are just a little "off" with most of the beads available. Could not find a spectacular glass bead at all that looked good. But was finally pleased with the piece.
