Flower Power!

It's a cold, grey and snowy day here in Mansfield and so I thought I'd brighten things up by posting some cheerful beaded flower pictures. I have designed a series of three flower brooches, the first of which, Primrose Pin, is in the new issue of Bead magazine which is out now. Next in the series is Poppy Pin, followed by Periwinkle Pin.




The second photo of the full set is courtesy of Bead magazine - don't they look great nestled on the grass like that?

  1. so beautiful! For so long I've been wanting to venture in beading and that desire was rekindled when I happen to visit here. I know I could learn a lot from you. Will be here often.

  2. Aww those are adorable! Congratulation on another published work! =)

    It's getting colder across the "pond" as well. No Snow in Connecticut yet...but I'm sure our time will come soon.

    Happy beading!

  9. These are really lovely pins. Have you thought about approaching The British Legion as they may well be interested in 'poppy' pins as Britain uses poppy's on Rememberance Day.

  10. Hey, thanks for the comment on Roo, he is a ham! :) Aww you have a chinchilla too? I love the little guy you can't help but not to. Although i can NOT find a way to keep him from chewing on..EVERYTHING lol Did you fix that problem with yours?

    Your flowers are lovely! You must have so much patience. If the other's are like the one you*ve already made {along with everything else} it will be flawless.

  13. I wish I could figure out from instructions how to do those stitches - they just floor me. Yet, when someone shows me live, I'm fine with it. My mind is not abstract enough to follow the directions.

  17. Beautiful - it looks just like the real primroses we used to pick when we were kids. We used to go "primrosing" every Spring.

  18. I just love your flower pieces. I really wanted to buy one of your beaded breast cancer ribbons but couldn't find them. I just only found the instructions to make it myself...which I have no desire to do. :)
