Vintage flowers and leaves make me happy...


We have acquired these lovely french beaded flowers and leaves in soft wedding whites and crystals that are really making my head spin. I keep thinking of ideas for ways to use them on earrings, on the front of a filigree locket, on a ring. Oh-oh-oh...

See all the flowers here...I'll have some projects next week, maybe several!

And I know, these flowers aren't so hard to make but these are DONE and that is kinda nice! I am tempted to cheat a bit and use some of these leaves to make a ring like the Monkey Garden ring I am teaching at Ornamentea on May 21st. In that class, we'll make our own leaves but maybe an all-white garden would be nice for a monkey?)


If you want to join me for the Monkey Garden Ring, call the store at 919-834-6260. We use the oval screen rings to bead on. The class isn't up yet on the website, but we have started a sign-up sheet.
