I have a reason to celebrate - I sold the first item in my Etsy shop.
This lariat was a custom order from a lady who liked my dark berry lariat. She wanted her lariat to be made of crystal clear beads.
I had to be sure the beads are right. On the photo to the right you can see the difference between clear crystals and crystals with AB coating. I even used invisible thread to keep crystal beads as clear as possible.
