I think it's done!


What do you think? I think it'd better be done 'cause I had enough of working on this thing! ;-)

I want to say a big *Thank You* to Barbara Grainger for writing one of my favorite beading books: 'Dimensional Flowers, Leaves & Vines'.
It's always the first book I'm referring to every time I'm playing around with leaves and flowers and it's from this book that I learnt the technique for the leaves and petals I used in this necklace.

I also want to say *Merci Beaucoup*to  Frany for asking me to make a flowers swap with her.
It's because of this swap that I pushed myself to figure out how to make these flowers (I made an orange/yellow set for her) and a way to mount them on a necklace that 'd be different from hers in style.
Frany uses a wire inside of her ropes and attaches the flowers at the end of the ropes. I wanted my flowers to stay up, but without using any wire.
Now that this one is done, I can play with the beautiful flowers that she made for me and see what I can do with them.
Oh yes, I also need to finish the 'Lentils & Donuts' necklace, so I guess I'm going to be busy beading for a while. ;-)

Hi Mary,

Thank you so much for your kind words! :-)

I'm beading, I'm beading...I just had a new idea for one of the flowers I got from the swap with Frany, so I have to see if I can make it work. ;-)

The colors are excellent and I love the design. never thought I would get into beaded jewlery but you have enver made any thing I would not wear my self. God truly has blessed you with many gifts....glad to see the beading is going great. The garden will fall into place with time hey if anything you could bead on hell of one. 

Love you

Hey Sweetie,

Thanks! :-)

I tell you, one of these days I'll convince you to try beading. ;-)

Haha I better keep beading if I want to substitute all the yard plants with beaded ones! Sounds cool though...' I got me a hell of a beaded garden'! LOL
