About this design:

I have to say I’m very happy with how these turned out. The picture shows the leaves as red, but they are more amber in color. I made the ear wire as well (another first for me). I hope y’all will try this and post- LB bloggers are always an inspiration to me!


Lucite flowers and leaves-hand painted with alcohol ink. A little yellow Czech flower, headpins, bead cap and super new glue.

    Lovely! The layering of the different components is wonderful. I like how you added the czech flower in the center, and then the bead cap to the back as you drew the wire thru and made it the ear wire. Very nice :)
