Storm Clouds

Yesterday, despite the weather, I received the book "Beautiful Beaded Ropes" by Jill Wiseman and was inspired to pull out the beads.  Originally I was going to make a spiral bead rope for this focal bead using the semi-precious stones that I had selected, and I really liked the colors that I selected and the look of the spiral beaded rope, but I also discovered that with a focal bead of this weight, you need more than beading thread to support it and make everything hang right, so I defaulted to the old faithful string some gemstones and call it good.  I added the silver bangle on a whim, but am not sure that I am going to keep it.
