I do have lots of little green clay frog beads that I do sell. I have to list them but I do have one finished necklace to show the end result. They are so fun. :)

Here is one of my favorite focal beads. I love butterflies. This one is greens and yellows and I can add all kinds of accents or make them any size. These are just about the size of a silver dollar. Just the right size for a pendant of a bracelet. I have over 50 colors.
