Bouquet of Flowers Pendant


About this design:

I wanted to try something different with the lucite flowers. Here is an upside down bouquet of spring flowers. I think it lays nicely and is very spring-like. I have it on a ladder ribbon cord, but that is temporary.

Components:

lucite flowers, Green Tourmilated Quartz (LB), crystals (LB), Czech glass (LB), copper decorative head pins, bead cap

    I got the ladder ribbon at numei.com though you can sometimes find it at local specialty yarn stores.

    Thanks, Val–I just use a simple crochet chain to create the cord. I love ladder ribbon. The colors are so rich and vibrant and it has so many uses. Hope you find some and have fun! :)
