BEADED FLOWER NECKLACE:
This necklace is a free form piece that I made specifically to go with an outfit I like to wear. The outfit is basically black slacks and sleeveless shirt under a mostly black long sleeved shirt. the over shirt has large colorful flowers on it, so I wanted to use those colors in my necklace to draw the eye and compliment the shirt, since I felt the outfit was too dark without a matching necklace. I searched my bead stash until I found beads that matched and complimented the flowers and leaves on the shirt. I cut an unusual shape from a piece of ultra sued and just started beading. Since I teach a lot of doll classes, I used UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel) cabochon faces as the centers of the flowers. I thought this brought a lot of personality to this piece. The necklace is backed with ultra suede and a beaded neck chain was made to fit over my head.
