It is very late in the day for me to be blogging. Somewhere along the line, the time just got away from me. I finished this new necklace this morning, took the pictures and posted it on Etsy. Then I got busy with life in general and forgot about blogging all together.
When I reordered black seed beads from Fire Mountain, the price had gone up. Boo hiss. That is until I got them. They changed companies and these are terrific! I used to have to pick and choose my way through the pile to get uniform ones. Not anymore! YEAH!!!! Black was especially bad with the other manufacturer. There were very few rejects this time.
So, my pretty floral necklace went together a lot easier than in the past. The pattern does not call for the alternate color center, but wanting it to come out looking somewhat like a Poinsettia, I chose a deep Topaz to go along with the Ruby colored beads in the flowers. I just love this necklace. Over the years I've sold two of them. I sure hope this one doesn't linger on the shelf too long.
