Here is a picture of the beautiful beads that Lorelei and Shannon picked for their Lima Beads Blog Hop:
Aren't those just the most beautiful colors? I love the combination of colors and textures, and did my best to use as much of the kit as I could.
Without further ado, here's my necklace (please excuse the pictures - I had to use artificial light and couldn't find my light box anywhere!):
I really wanted to highlight the ribbon and the gorgeous glass drops, and still include most of the other elements without the design getting too fussy.
The three pressed glass flowers are wired to the brass filigree focal with copper wire.
I tried a new technique weaving seed beads around the glass beads, and I really like the effect.
