On another design note: encased beads are: beads that have designs (such as swirls, flowers, stripes) that are covered (otherwise known as encased) with a thick clear glass coating, thus making the bead bigger in size and giving the bead more dimension. When I get a chance I will show you a bead that has an encased flower inside, and with an added detail of a bubble-center in the flower! REALLY COOL!
Have a wonderful evening and I will catch ya'll tomorrow! Sweet Dreams!
