A Long Time Coming Finish

Some finishes take longer than others. Some you never finish, and some you put aside as it's just boring or there are too many color changes. For whatever reason, they're just get set aside. I've really been riding the wave of finishing up those that have been languishing in the Bin O' Shame and managed to finish this latest one up just a bit ago. I re-did the beadwork as the beads weren't sitting correctly and I didn't like the way it looked. I forgot to take the 'before' photo, but oh, well. :)


At any rate, here it is, Bin O'Shame finish number seven of the year:
