The originality, diversity of talents, and sheer beauty of these is spectacular. I'm honestly speechless.

Thanks bunches everyone!!!  Grin
Here is another batch using flowers that I Sew Cute did.  She made me a TON so this is Batch one of three.  She is soooooo good!!  The purple violets turned to this gorgeous yellow!!  Isn't that wild???


Various sizes and shapes, aren't they pretty all nature-like?  I want to try some blue in different shades behind them with polyclay like I did before.

Here are the darkest of blue that looked the best.  Too dark and it drowns out the flowers.  So sky blue it is.....

Two more shades down on the blue and one lone brown one with copper background.

Now pics one by one....

Bright yellow and green beads

green and light topaz beads.  Notice I branched out some with this one, changing bead colors in diff location.  Spiral pattern bail.

Darker topaz and green beads.  I put bail on the corner this time.

I added small dragonfly bead to this one, filling in some empty space at the top. 

Saving this one for the last because it is my favorite!!  Silver and very light blue matte beads.

I am not obsessed with Perty Thangs, I am disciplined...

I have alot to share, all you gotta do is ask.

 
Crochet, x-stitch, Ribbon embroidery, plastic canvas, beadwork, polymer clay, wire work, and now TATTING!!  Please help me learn to knit, then I might be complete.

Your work is beyond anything I could ever achieve, simply gorgeous! I'm not even sure my fingers can work those tiny little beads, but maybe one day I'll give it a shot. You have my complete admiration!

Thank you!  I'm glad you got through the storm w/out too much damage!  The weather is why I fled to the west coast, now I only have to worry about earthquakes... but you don't see those coming, so no point in worrying.  :-D
