A Riff on Wild Roses Necklace

I love the Wild Roses Coins and wanted to try something else with them so I decided to use some wire for this one. Kind of a sister to my last posting.

    I love your wild rose coin beads as well. You’ve crested another beauty with them. Impressively perfect wire loops btw. It’s like the last garden going into fall. Colors of the druks not as bright but beautiful. Roses coming to the end of the season. It’s beautiful and speaks to me of the changing seasons Beady.

    This is gorgeous B.L.E….the leaves at the end are the perfect touch. This is also perfectly asymmetrical…which I’m always attracted to. You never cease to amaze me with the different pieces you come up with. You have a busy mind…as well as busy hands…which is good.

    I can’t believe how different this piece is from the last. Using the wire creates a different effect with a more open & airy feel about it. Love the softness of the Macadamia druks; they were a great choice. I’m not sure of the size, but I wonder if the two necklaces could be worn together? I think the differences of them would complement each other. So glad you’re having fun!
