This is another pattern I tried this week. It was a pleasure to see it come together. I went to a couple of bead stores in Wilmington, NC, a couple of times, and I was going to go to a beading get together on Sunday but I missed my hubby & each one of you, so I came home two days early, to him & to my computer access!
The "Floral Motif" pattern was in a book I purchased but I can not find the name of the author. (I am so sorry but when I find my book, in this mess, I will let you know the designer's name.) Anyway, I wanted to share this gorgeous necklace & ear rings with you. It is extremely comfortable & very light on the neck.
I also made the same pattern out of copper & bronze. It is certainly a different necklace all together. I used up all of my copper metallic delicas, (which I was so sad about. Now I have to go find a source for those lovely beads. I can not remember where I got them but will be out looking on the morrow.) There was not even enough to make a matching set of ear rings. The center of the flower motif is a cluster of bronze crystals to carry through the same bead as the ones that attach each "leaf" together. I closed this necklace with a beautiful hook & eye copper clasp.
See, I have been busy working while relaxing at the beach. Let me know what you think of this design.
Your sweet comments are what keeps me creating and I appreciate each one of you for taking the time to let me know what you like & what colors you appreciate. Thank you, dear friends, for all of your encouragement & kindnesses towards me.
