Isn't this little ring a cutie? Lucite rose with czech glass petals, 8's and then a metal flower, painted in several different hues to get to just the right match.
And yet another little ring. Peyote stitch using 11s with flower and side hinge embellishments with 15s picot. I started the ensemble with, yes, the ring, based on a pattern for a bracelet I saw at Fusion Beads on their Inspiration page. I did my own thing from there.
Necklace to match ring. This is really so adorable with a dainty St. Petersburg stitched necklace. The purple, green, yellow and a really bright orange center 3mm really pop for a summer combo. I used 11s for the basic square, but stitched the flower in 8s so it would pop out.
The fringe dangles show better in this shot!
Yet another pattern just learned at Bead Street, using a free online pattern by Deborah Roberti. Thanks Sandy Taylor for "learnin" us. You are a wonderful teacher, fellow beader and friend! It was a wonderful afternoon. This is not the bracelet I made that afternoon. I didn't like my colors or my design, so went home and cut that one up and started over. Love these daisy czech glass two-holes I have in my stash. Wish I could remember where the heck I bought these. Plus two-hole lentels, 11s in two colors, yellow and gold....
