Last year, I discovered some beautiful acrylic flower beads that several shops sell on Etsy.com.
They lend a sense of fun and romance to any design and, until last week, I've used them exclusively in earrings. I listed several new pairs last week which garnered rave revues.
A friend mentioned that she doesn't have pierced ears, but she really liked the flower earrings. I worked up a design for a necklace featuring these lovely beads.
These are so much fun to make...
I really enjoy wire wrapping - it puts me in a zen-like mood, and the results are delicate and airy.
This month I stocked up on some new brass findings for experimenting. I like using the filigree stampings,
but these simple circles have lots of potential.
