Desert Flower

About this design:

Not that I have seen this kind of flower in the desert..One of my first attempts with wire. I used Faceted Botswana agate teardrops to form the petals and different shapes of freshwater pearls for the center. Then I wired wrapped it on to the leather strap. The end caps are handmade by Hip Chick beads.


Leather,Botswana agate, Freshwater pearls, sterling silver

    This is very pretty!!! Almost as great as the rings, but I am a ring freak, so the rings come in first place. But I do really like this too!!! ;)

    Great job! The flower is gorgeous!
    Since I don’t wear rings or bracelets, I’d love to see this off-center on a necklace!
