Sunflower in shade
A haiku by Cindy Smith
Guess what?! I definitely planting sunflowers this spring! Another nature inspired design.


Sunflower pendant from Etsy. Flower ocean jasper 8 mm, paper bead, Czech bird, 2 different types of honeycomb beads, bee mood bead, Seed beads. I made the big fabric bead, rosary chain, black leather strap. Gold findings. I think I’ll change the clasp to a lobster clasp.

    I love your necklace and your haiku. Especially your necklace – just beautiful. And so many unusual beads. I love your sunflower pendant.
    We feed the birds here in the winter and in the spring lots of sunflowers come up beneath the feeder. So fun.

    Look at all the beautiful beads! This is a delightful work of art that tells a story. I really like the bead you made from fabric–it gives this necklace such a handcrafted feel & adds to the uniqueness of the design. You’ll have everyone wanting to grow sunflowers this year! :)
