Hand-painted focal beads are some of the prettiest I've seen. I love how the colors of the Czech glass work so well with the focal in this necklace.

Raven's Journey Czech glass beads are available in so many amazing shapes and colors. Cynthia had fun using several different styles in these pieces to accentuate a gorgeous hand-painted Russian artist bead. Since the Czech glass beads are available by the strand, it's easy to create even more jewelry to match. Becky challenged Cynthia on Facebook Live with these components to make a piece of jewelry and Cynthia created all of these pieces. You can watch Cynthia make these jewelry designs here.
