This is my version of the St. Petersburg Lariat by Hatsumi Oshitani. I used black-striped white seed beads with 3mm and 4mm fire-polished faceted rounds and gunmetal delicas. It lends itself to being very supple, and is easy to wear.
I'm happily married to the man of my life, and am honored to be able to step aside from my career of 17 years to be the best mommy I can to our two yummy little boys! They are just SO dear! We also have two wonderful adult children who are now footloose and fancy-free. It is satisfying knowing that they are responsible, respectable, and productive members of society.
