    Unbelievably beautiful!

  8. Wow! Just amazing, that has to be so many hours of work if it were all added up. It's so meditative rolling each bead onto a needle and nesting it neatly in with it's neighbor.

  9. Wow. Looking at them all together is amazing. It is going to be very, very hard to choose!

  10. Just a heads up - #9 is mislabled. The link is correct but it is not by lolo.
