Featuring My New Necklace

Today I posted my "Crystal Flowers Necklace." It's a new look for me, but then again most things are lately! I think one thing that defines my style (other than ecletic) is that I'm continuing to try and explore new things! This was inspired by the Etsy Bead Weavers challenge for an exotic flower. I think it falls far short of the other entries I've seen so far, but I'm proud that I came of something I came up with that I could achieve!

I want to learn to bead flowers that are realistic - it's on my list of things I want to learn - but I'll need to follow someone's pattern for the first few of those and that can't be entered into a challenge or even necesarily sold. I do have on pattern that I got permission to recreate and sell - but I haven't gotten a chance to start it yet. Oh well...maybe after Christmas? LOL


I was also featured in other treasury! Actually both of my shops were :) Thanks Cheryl! My "etsyholic" bracelet is in the top left and my mom's purple hair clip is in the second row all the way on the right :)
