|Fun flower earrings - very light and colorful.|
|The necklace centerpiece. More flowers, with some lucite and of course copper, my metal of choice. And, my signature... a ♥!|

Below, the latest incredible pattern from Eileen at Bead Street using super duos. Still a work in progress for me - I'll post the finished version once it's done. I had purchased czech squares to stitch in where the swarovski bicones are now... but, alas, the squares wouldn't lay flat, so instead of fighting it on this first version, I opted for the bicones. I actually love the crystals and the color combo. What this wonderful woman Eileen has shared, and continues to share, with me and others, is such a GIFT. Thank you so much for making me a better beader and giving me all this inspiration. I could NOT have gotten this far without your encouragement, your willingness to share with me, and your LOVE for beading. ♥
And, last but certainly not least - the beautiful blooms on our front door tree. I think it is a flowering crab apple, and each year it brings me such joy as it awakens our walkway with color. It's one of the first signs of life renewed!!!
