It was fun. Except when I dropped one of the pink beads and the dude and I were down on all fours looking for it and Stella decided she could be most helpful by licking our faces since clearly we needed to play.
The big bead is a rhodochrosite. I scrounged around for things that would match. (I needed to buy the wire; I've got plenty of beads.) If I did it again, I'd go darker with the bugle and seed beads. But I still think it looks pretty nifty.
I think I might give it to my hairdresser who had a run-in with a wolf spider that she told me about at my last visit. This seems like a good souvenir.
