    Stunning. I love the leaf beads and how well the complement the beautiful flower focal bead. I also really like the use of the chain circles … they really open up the design.

    This is gorgeous! I love the brass leaf beads. I was JUST at Botanical Gardens too, for the orchid show called Cuba in Flower. I wonder if we were there at the same time? Didn’t they have the most amazing flowers?!! I’m doing a pick right now for it! :D

    I too have missed hearing from you and your designs. This one is a stunning creation. Loving the design and the focal bead of Orchid. I would have loved to see the botanical part of the Smithsonian tour when we were in Washington DC for our honey moon but somehow missed it. I have a Master Gardners certificate and truely love working with plants and landscaping. Should have been my true calling but….. So glad to hear from you. Don’t stay away so long next time. Faith

    Thanks a lot! I haven’t made any jewelry for a while and now I had a very productive weekend. I visited the Botanic Garden in Helsinki, which is quite small but very lovely.
