This past weekend, Matt was out of town and I was full of inspiration from the bead show, so I decided to see what I could do with those beads. The color is like a ripe bowl of freshly washed raspberries, but they are much bigger- more like a strawberry. Between the bold color and large size, I was having trouble designing something that Mom would love to wear.
Aren't they beautiful??
After 2 hours I still just had a pile of beads, but after some experimenting, this is what I created. I love how the chain balances out the bulk of the large beads and the flower adds some extra color. There were still extra beads so I made Mom a sparkly bracelet to wear dancing and a replica necklace for myself. I can't wait to wear it!
