Today they finally arrived! Jump

I felt challenged to do a design with them, having seen so many beautiful designs already.
So, I've been 'working' on it gathering beads that could match the difficult SA glass bead.
Upon finally holding the SA beads nearly all previously collected beads were not suitable, the design turned out too 'dull'.

Nevertheless I'm very pleased with this result... Girl
The SA glass beads unexpectedly add some spice to it and it is a beautiful bracelet to wear...
definitely a keeper!

Love it! I plan on using my Black Bubbles & Onyx beads with them too, maybe red Prism. The amber really fits too.

Weren't they worth the wait??!!

Q: Is the Lion comfortable to wear on a bracelet?

Q2: Do the Kathy Perras Tiger beads come lined in silver now???

Definitely worth the wait, but I did get worried. Embarrassed
I was about to report the shipment missing/lost as I'd have to do so within 30 days for the CC insurance...

The lions are indeed comfortable to wear on a bracelet. My chain is rather loose, 1 cm larger than usual, that might help?

These Kathy Perras beads were lined with silver when I ordered them. She sells both lined and unlined at her Etsy shop.

Whew... big relief that they arrived!! I think this design is wonderful. I hope one day to own a set, but the lion is at the tops of my want list if I were to buy individually. Your glass ooak is has to be one of the prettiest I've ever seen. sunny

Great news, your SA beads have finally arrived!
The ambers and Siberian Tiger beads make a great addition to the SA beads. I do love the lion bead...
