It might be frustrating when you run out of beads in the middle of a project, but there are other options for finishing your design. Cheri demonstrates how leather can make a wonderful option for finishing looks in this necklace design. She paired leather with Dakota Stones gemstone beads and Czech glass. You can see more ideas for how to finish jewelry when you run out of beads in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
