    Lovely! The picket fence adds interest to the flowers that I haven’t seen nor thought about doing.

    Wow BLE. These little pouch necklaces are the bomb. This one has so much intricate detail. I was working on something with a lot of seed beads (bezeling) a few days ago before I gave up. I said to myself how the heck does Beady manage this! I’m not giving up but it was an epic fail, LOL. I really respect the talent it takes to create these pieces.

    Thank you all so much. KR – Don’t give up – You’ll get there.
    My husband said he couldn’t figure out what he was looking at so I thought I was fooling myself. Then I asked my daughter if she could figure it out and in 1/2 second she said flowers growing up a picket fence. So funny.

    I had to come by for a second look. I am so amazed by your creativity and talent. That you could think of and then create a scene of flowers growing on a picket fence at night and in the daytime is so awesome. Your work is so inspiring.

    Thank you so much kye. I started it twice. On my first try I made brown fence posts and lots of flowers. Way too confusing and not enough sky. So I had to redo. I was afraid I was going to need another redo. I’ve attached a photo.

    Great concept of creating a piece reflecting day & night–light & dark. Beady, where do all of your wonderful ideas come from? Very inspiring work!
