Teal flowers: Bulahan wood beads, FABULOUS polyclay beads from a woman's group in Africa, falling ring chain (LB) and 20 and 22 gauge parawire (LB). Sweet bird: These ceramic components are from BluMudd. Lots of parawire (LB) on this one too! Flower power: This was going to be a lariat and I found the awesome flower focal in my stash. (This is why we buy everything in sight because we never know when it will be necessary to a design!!!)
