Flower from an ugly bracelet involving lots of pink plastic beads. Vintage green millefiori beads, artisan made red lampwork, hummingbirds from a little shop in York, old beadcaps from summat or other, you get the idea. Pre-made chain mostly hung from the openwork flower, though bits are hung from the connector on the back of the flower. Not the most complicated of pieces to put together but pretty effective.

Or so I thought. Took a LONG time working out how to arrange it so that the hummingbirds weren't headbutting or being attacked by the other beads.

What else? First 'proper' post, don't be gentle, I like concrit!

I think it's gorgeous! I love the combination of the beads and the black ribbon. I would totally wear that.  Smiley

I LOVE it. Such nice color combination as well....I probably wouldn't have thought to add in the green beads, but they make it very nice.

AzureStars - I had leaf charms originally, but I thought they made it all too crowded. The green beads have red millefiori flowers on them (not sure how obvious that is in the picture) so they fit in a lot better than plain green might have.

Thanks guys! *hugs*
