I finally finished this lariat!
I'm so happy it's off my table and ready to go to Kearney next weekend! It turned out quite lovely, but not the way I had thought it would go. I planned for this larait to be more in the bronze family, bringing out the color of the center beads, but it wanted to be more blues/yellows, bringing out the colors in the side beads. That seems to happen to me a lot--but when the piece calls out for a certain bead, I must go with it!

That's what I call my "Bead Whisperer" moments. LOL!

Your lariat is lovely, and perfect the way it is. I've always been a sucker for a fall palette.
