This is the Bead Soup she handpicked for me! Including her Custom Clay Focal beads & more! Way way way out of my comfort zone.

But once I wrapped my brain around a recipe I just went with it! These creations were finished while we were staying in a Oceanfront Hotel Room listening to the waves for a much needed Vacation break this Summer. Ormond Beach, Florida here's the hotel room!
