A Project Finished: for MYSELF!!!

Don't get me wrong, I love to create art as gifts for other's and to sell, but sometimes I look around and realize that I have nothing that I have made for myself!! Besides, some of the best advertising is done when one wears pieces that one has created!! I started this bracelet project last summer. It got pushed aside as I got busy with swaps and gifts and the Holiday shows. Well now it is finished!! Having time to finish up special projects is one of the reasons that I like the winter so much! The Holidays are past, the garden is asleep and the kids are back in school and it is the perfect time to organize, clean out and finish things up!

As some of you know, I love to garden and I love Old Fashioned Roses!! When I came across a pattern for this bracelet, I knew that I had to try it!! I made each cabbage rose as a separate piece and then attached them onto a green square stitched base. Next I added in all of the leaves and little flower beads to complete the garden look. It just makes me smile and I love to wear it!!

Here is a detail shot!

Spring and roses are just around the corner!!!!

This is wonderful. I bead as well and can appreciate being able to actually keep something for myself.

Really like the addition of beads to your work, it goes so well with your bright colors! Can't wait to see this pretty piece in person!
I answered your question about backing the button fairies on my blog. As sweet Janet Moss says, 'my quote is your quote', do feel free to use it! Oh, guess what, I stumbled across a pair of ivory looking elephant earrings and added one to my Hello India page, it went perfectly with the marching elephants along the bottom. I have another spread ready to post with parts to thank you for as well! Cheerio!
