Spring Bouquet


About this design:

I was inspired by something in a recent issue of "Bead Style", and also by a design we are teaching at Michaels. I sort of mixed them together. I showed the back so you can see the structure. (Oh, the magician gave away the trick! LOL)

Components:

Copper Artistic wire, lucite flowers, var. beads.

    Cindy, Another wonderful piece–just in time for summer! I love these acrylic flowers and am drawn to them–but, I will admit, I’m not quite the ‘flowery’ personality. I keep buying them, wondering what I will do with them; your design is great inspiration–thank you! The various colors throughout along with all the different elements are GREAT! Thanks too for the peak at the back. :)

    Thank you all! This was fun to make, I had the front section done for a few days before I figured out what to do with it. I have worn it to the office a few times and it always gets comments & compliments. :)

    That is awesome. I am so glad you showed the back, I always wondered how folks did that without the piece flopping forward.

    It’s soooo pretty and dainty! It reminds me of having tea in a country garden wearing a straw hat and a flowing chiffon dress. Beautiful work and design!!
