Frany's flower will have to live in Europe, it's too big to live on Mauna Loa

Mauna Loa ~ Day 3
Mauna Loa ~ Day 3

In my first post about my new Mauna Loa necklace I said:
*I don't know how it's going to work out and I might change something along the way, but the idea is to construct a base that gives the idea of an old lava flow and then insert the flowers and some ferns among the lava rocks...*
Well, I'm really sorry if you are disappointed, but Frany's flower is not going to work into this project, mostly because it is too big and the proportions are way off to look right. I will have to use size 15/0 seed beads for the ferns and flowers. The other reason has to do with matching the other colors that I want to use in this necklace. I absolutely love Delica 689 and the flower she made with them, but it's an extremely hard to match color and doesn't look nice close to any of the other greens that I have to use for the ferns.

Frany, I'm sorry you still have to wait to see me doing something with your flowers, but sooner or later I will find the right project for them. :-)

Hey Sweetie,

Thanks! I have another idea for Frany's flowers that might work out, but it will take some time before I can try it, this project is going to keep me busy for a while.

As usual, I loved chatting with you earlier. :-)

Much love and hugs to both of you,

Merci Frany! :-)  Je suis désolé que je ne peux pas utiliser ta fleur dans ce collier  comme j'avais espéré. 
Je pense à la fin que je devrai utiliser le fil en métal pour monter tes fleurs, mais je ne ferai pas probablement un collier… j'ai une autre idée.
