i love the color of the beads. how is it attached to the rock?

I used superglue to attach it to the rock. In order to keep it looking icy, I smeared the glue while it was still warm so that it would be more of a coating of glue than a blob. I also put the smeared glue on the tops of the roots and other places I didn't really need it to be to get more of that iced-over look.

This is beautiful.  It actually reminds me of ice on tree branches during the winter; the tear drops look like water that's collected at the ends and then froze.  The rock even looks like ice.  I really love it.

Thanks! I was hoping for a super icy look, and I was so excited when I found the rock, because I agree that it looks a lot like ice!
