Audry Bead Trends May 2011


About this design:

This is my submission for May 2011. I finally got mine back today.
This is Audry (Old Hollywood Glam). My daughter thought it looked like Audry Hepburn.
I bought the brooch and Aurora Borealis beads at an Estate Sale. The lady wanted $10 each. I offered her $17 and they were mine!!
I had 4 pages in the magazine!! I think they turned out great!

Components:

Vintage brooch, vintage aurora borealis necklace, silver spacers, square glass beads.
