Transubstantiation of Amber

This piece took a while to envision and then materialize. (There were lots of little seed beeads to manage in this one!) On the second or third time it was worn, it had a terrible accident in which it caught on something immovable, which unleashed the energy of a million little E beads and all the dangles, all of them flying away from each other like the Second Big Bang! I gathered up what I could and put the pieces away for a long while. But hope springs eternal, doesn't it? They all came together again in a new life, with a lovely bead toggle, and maybe even better than in their previous incarnation.
