Lily Necklace

Busy week of making beads, working on book projects and getting ready for the Bead Cruise. I'll share a necklace that I made a few years ago. A beaded lily, pearls, silver seed beads, stones, a pmc leaf and some of my disk beads.

A detail of the flower. I need to make some more of these! I also did a tiger lily in orange and bronze colors around the same time. It's probably the only piece of jewelry I regret selling, I wish I still had it in my hot little hands!
This purple version belongs to my friend Juliet now. Here is a photo from our Bead Soup night. Beads & chocolate abound! (Me, Juliet & Angela)

Love the group picture. I wish I had beady friends close by.

Wow, Heather, that is undoubtably the most romantic necklace I have ever seen! I could really get into seed beading-- maybe it's project fodder for your book? I would love to have instructions for that one!
