Hardware Garden April 2011 Bead Trends

About this design:

This is a Copper collar necklace. There are beads on it that I made out of copper washers, bead caps, and copper balls that look like a flower.
I had a copper charm that was a rose sitting on a flat copper round. I was looking at these beads one day and thought that I could make something similar. So I put the washers, bead caps and copper beads together.
I just love this necklace and I am so thrilled that they published it.
