In Stitches

My first new piece is a petrified snail shell with druzy agate inside, Swarovski pearls, glass seed beads in 15/0 and 11/0, a Sterling silver clasp, backed in Ultrasuede. I donated it to the silent auction at my kids' school. You can click and enlarge the photos. 

The second piece is a geode slice with seed beads in 11/0 and 15/0, bugle beads, Swarovski pearls, Czech dragonscale beads, backed in Ultrasuede. It's about 4.47" from bail to the ends of the fringe.
