Well it's that time of the week again where we explore what we creatives have been creating.
This week I made some beaded tulip charms for a swap over on UKJC and while I was making them I could see that the technique I was using could be used to make other flower/star shapes. I'm not sure if these look like flowers - maybe more like stars?
Anyway, I've decided that I like them enough to make a new collection for my bridal range. I like the versatility of making it simple or putting a few of them together to make something rather extravagent for maybe an Indian wedding. The ideas are buzzing around in my head (where else would they be huh? - lol don't answer that :) )
I'm going to be making up the red/gold version first as I have made up enough flowers/stars for a necklace. I'll post pics once it's made up.

|4mm Czech beads placed inbetween the stitched flowers - another idea|
|Red and Gold Czech Beads 4 & 6mm. I've made a larger flower as a center point.|
