Even though I'm in Hamilton now I order most of my beads from Bead FX. Hamilton has a paucity of bead stores!

That's why I'm so grateful to have family living there and who I can stay with.
She got me the beads and I got to work. It took me about 2 months on and off but I finally finished it tonight:
