This is a pair of bead flowers that I might use on the surface of a peyote stitch necklace I am making. It was started during the ArtBeadScene challenge to make a piece inspired by VanGogh's Almond Blossoms painting. Although I didn't finish in time for the challenge, I am pleased it got me started on this necklace.
I used a Kemper flower cutter and let the push piece mark the hole. I will string a turquoise seed bead over the hole which will give the flower some more color. I wanted to use just this teal color since if goes well with the color scheme of the necklace which is blues and greens and of course a bit of almond white.
Elaine Ray and have found it to be very helpful.
It was one of my New Year's resolutions to make some beads for my own work this year. So here I am trying them out.
