Flower Fun


About this design:

It seems that I can't stop making these flower focals. I keep thinking about all these "what ifs?" What would it look like to combine three flowers? Would it make a nice pendant for a necklace? What would it look like with three flowers on a bracelet? So, I've been exploring possibilities and having a lot of fun in the process.

Components:

Weave Got Maille jump rings for the 2 in 2 chain, 18 & 20 guage Artistic Wire, Czech Glass 8mm Aquamarine Chandeliers (LB), Czech Glass Beachside Mix 6x9mm Rondelles (LB), Czech Glass 6mm cubes, 4mm Czech Glass coins, Super Duos, Rullas, 11/0 seed beads and my handmade clasp for the necklace.

    Wow kye! This is so beautiful! I love how you used the rullas and was able to double layer the daisies. It makes it reversible which provides for many opportunities.

    Thank you so much for the sweet comments. :)

    Maggies Mom I watched a YouTube video called Flower Earrings by Canal craft Beading. I’m pretty much a beginner beadweaver and was able to follow the directions. The video shows how to make earrings with two flowers connected.

    This is such a beautiful pattern with endless possibilities. I can see how you could spend hours just playing around with color combos or numbers of flowers, the four seasons, holidays, etc.

    Love the colors and the workmanship is exceptional!

    Kye…I just love this!! I really like the color you added to this design–it adds a whole different dimension to your work. The aqua beads and silver wire are a perfect backdrop for the flowers. I also like how the flowers vary in color, but still coordinate together. Fantastic piece…and yes, so many possibilities…can I make some flowers too?!
