Tiptoe Thru the Tulips

About this design:

I received some vintage beads yesterday and was wondering why I had ordered some of them...let alone what to do with them. This is what I came up with using some of them and an old Golem tulip bead I had. I know it's more of a Summer/Spring design.

    Beautiful sweetjane – such a fun bracelet. Love all of the elements you used. Peanut beads and peanut copper chain. So fun to find an old bead for a new piece.

    What a wonderful way to use the vintage flower beads. They look great lined up with the color dancing about. I don’t think you could have found a better bead than the Golem tulip to use with them. Very sweet piece. :)

    Delightful! And you may wear flowers in winter if you want, it is then summer somewhere.
