Copper Flower Patch


About this design:

The beads were speaking to me designing this piece(pick me, pick me) After I had all my beads in place, decided I need some sort of contrast to go with the dusty pink and merlot. Found the copper flowers and thought they did the trick nicely! I finished it off with copper chain(three strands) and a small copper daisy hook clasp from daisychainextra.

Components:

Lava Rock dusty pink large round bead, Muscovite Puff Coin, Ruby faceted rounds and rondelles pink and white glass lentil bead, glass round druk, merlot leaves, copper flower beads and dangles, copper chain and jump rings, small copper daisy hook clasp.

    I love the muscovite coin addition and all the colors overall. I had that 20mm Muscovite in my cart and waited too long to buy it. It looks lovely here!

    Wow Wanda! What fantastic colors and shading! It reminds me of sitting in the garden, enjoying rich homemade ice cream with ripe, fresh berries on top! Fantastic job and I truly despise pink!

    Thank you all so much for the wonderful comments! My 19 year old daughter really liked this one, and she usually doesn’t say much about my pieces. I think she might have an eye on it for this burgundy dress she has :)

    I love the burgundy and pink. Pink can be a very neutral color especially the way your combined it with the other colors. Beautiful.

    Wanda! I’m speechless! This is SO elegant, but SO fun and funky, and SO casual with jeans. I’m NOT a pink girl, but I would buy something pink just so I could wear this. :) The tiny flowers are brilliant.
