I found some flowers!

About this design:

It has taken me half the day to find my Czech flowers- I have to come up with a better organized system . I wanted to make a couple pair of Czech flower earrings. I’ve got some pumpkin earrings to do and then I’m done! Sorry the pictures are kind of dark. I put my light box up.

Components:

I used Czech flowers, Czech leaves, Czech horse eye beads, seed beads and antique wire in brass and copper.

    Robin, these are some nice pieces for the Fall Market. Flowers & leaves always sneak their way into everyone’s jewelry box! I love the larger pair with the flowers wired inside. I can’t wait to hear how the show goes. You must be close to being prepared & ready with lots of good things to sell.

    I used to keep my flower beads scattered around in different cases sorted with my other beads according to color. It became real hard to find them & know what I actually had. So I pulled them all out, and now have a case just for flowers. With just a quick glance, I can see all I have & what I’ll need to reorder. I also have a case for animals & ‘sea’ themed beads.

    I think these are wonderful. I keep my flower beads all in the same box with the leaves, etc. It does make it easier to find when you get in a flower making mood. Good job with the earrings.

    More great earrings for the Fall Market. I wish I was going. It sounds like so much fun. These are awesome by me. I can’t give you any advice on organizing though. I’m hopeless, LOL. I like the 2nd pair the most. The first pair look the hardest and most interesting though. You are bound to sell a lot of these earrings.

    Wonderful earrings Robin. I love them all.
    I also organize my beads by type. Flowers, Critters, Leaves, squares….

    Hope the sale goes well for you.

    I think you will do quite well at your fall market Robin. You definitely have some great earrings to sell. I’m so glad to hear you all are so organized…right now I would be hard pressed to tell you where all my flowers are. Organized beader I am not!!

    These are beautiful Robin, your pieces are always fantastic, and I agree with everyone above, you have a great selection of earrings for people to choose from.
    I look forward to when I have enough beads for them to be a problem to organize! :D

    Oh good more neat earrings. I wish I could go to your Fall Market too. Sounds like fun. The first pair are my favorite. They do indeed look tricky to make. All are pretty and should sell.

    As for organizing I have no tips. I’m horrible at it. In fact when I try I can never find what I’m looking for but I remember where it was before I organized. Ha. I think about the need to be more organized but never accomplish it.
