Hand made table cut Czech glass beads make the most wonderful statement. The beads are kind of hard to find, and I've had to order them on line - some from the UK. I'm not sure why that is, but I think it has something to do with being hand made - not machine cut. Anyway, I'm in love with them this season and pretty much find anything Czech glass is wonderful to work with. I wire wrapped the little turquoise Czech flower buttons on top of the leaves so they stay forward, which worked well to tighten them down a bit. I also added some sponge coral rounds under the top flower caps. So, cute!
|I'm kind of in a wire wrapping mood right now, so I started messing with 24 gauge wire and just kept pushing beads on. Love this combination... again, Czech glass coupled with fire polish.|
