I created these for a personal swap with paulinerose:



The set includes (clockwise from left) a pendant, a ring, and a barrette. She wanted pink roses, but also commented that she liked one of my pieces that was all neutral colors, so I decided to make the pink more "grown-up" and less "Barbie" by mixing red-lined topaz seed beads (pink) with dark topaz seed beads, topaz swarovski crystals, and other various topaz or brown beads. I really hope she likes them! I hadn't ever made a barrette like this, so it was definitely a challenge.

I learned how to do french flower beading, and then I let my imagination explode! Wink

It's not that hard once you learn, and things like this don't take nearly as long as some of the large flowers I do (which take 6-10 hours each, depending on the flower). Honestly, I don't know how I have the patience either. I can't manage to finish other craft projects, like crocheting. Tongue

Thanks to everyone! Smiley I appreciate the feedback!

You got it! In fact, that site was very helpful to me when I started out. I use this french beaded flower technique along with a few others and my own little tricks and basic jewelry making knowledge. Smiley
