I have a brand new blog to play with! :-)

As if I needed another excuse to spend more time on the internet! Ah! ;-)

Welcome folks! :-)

So, here I am, joining the Bloggers World!
I don't have all the bells and whistles I can see on other blogs, but the rest of my website should take care of that.
Additional photos will be posted in the
Photo Albums.
If you're looking for other sites and blogs, please check out my huge
Links page to see my favorites.
During the last couple of weeks, I've been rather busy with my
yard and I've spent too much time on the internet, so my pink flowers necklace is still waiting for its additional leaves and vines.
Here's the latest photo, it still needs 20 leaves (10 small and 10 large) and the necessary vine sections to connect them.

OMG ... your necklace is beautiful; love the colors, the arrangement of elements, etc, etc.  Did you create it yourself or did you have a pattern to work from.

Thank you, Brenda! :-)
It's my own design. I made it up as I went.
I created the flowers with the pointed backs for another beader (Frany) who wanted something suitable for her style of necklaces.
After I made her set, I decided to make another one and try to mount them in a totally different way from hers, without using a metal wire inside the ropes like she does.
You can see work in progress pictures in my News & Updates page.

Your necklace is absolutely stunning! I'm so impressed with what you've done. You have an absolutely marvelous eye for color and beauty! It's always exciting to see what people have done with the little flowers and leaves from my book. And I have to say that your necklace is absolutely breath taking!

PS. Thank you for mentioning the book. :)

Hi Barb! :-)

Thank you so much for visiting and for your kind words about my beadwork! I'm so glad to hear that you like the way I'm playing around with your leaves and petals! :-)
I will have to try the heart shaped ones soon and see what kind of tropical looking flowers  I can get from those. ;-)

This necklace is stunning!   How long has it taken you to bad this?
Gorgeous stuff!

Thank you so much, Dot! :-)

I don't know, I started beading the flowers back in July, but I didn't work on it continuosly 'cause I've been busy with the yard and the computer.
I think I needed about 8 hours for each small flower, about 12 for each of the larger ones, 25 and 35 minutes for each of the small and large leaves, but I have no clue about all the ropes and "vines". Long enough, though. ;-)
There are work in progress photos on the News & Updates page, if you'd like to see assembling  process.

Saby :-)

Welcome to the blogosphere! Can't wait to see more of your work. Also, please stop by my blog sometime. Happy beading from Boston! :D
