So ready for Spring!

Here in NC the winter weather this year has been brutal! It has been so cold and rainy this year that we are ready for a little bit of warmer weather. Friday morning it was once again cold and raining so Darlene and I decided to pull out the flower beads and start making some fun new spring designs. We hoped that it would lighten the dull mood. Well let me tell you...we had a blast making these new designs. Working with all the varieties of flower beads at the shop was such a breath of fresh air. I loved making the necklaces but they seem to take forever to make because you have to put all the flowers on head pins and make the wraps before you can even start thinking about putting the necklace together. With Darlene's help I made two different versions of the flower necklace. A few days earlier i had gotten Darlene started on making a bracelet with the flowers embellishing the top of the bracelet. The bracelet turned out great but there are a few minor adjustments to do to it before I decide to do a Pattern and video for it. Darlene was so excited because she finally got the bracelet finished while we were working on the other flower pieces. She had been working on it on and off for a couple of days so she was relieved to finally have the project completed. Below are pictures of what we made Friday. I still have a lot of earring ideas that I'm working on with the flowers and hope to be able to post some pics for you this week. For now though I have included pictures of the finished necklaces and bracelet as well as a picture of Darlene hard at work on some of our samples.
