I am so lusting after this Vera Wang necklace....but its $800!!! And look at the description...it's PLASTIC pearl beads on black wool felt, with regular old brass chains!! Seems easy enough, right? Or at least inexpensive comparatively! I am determined to make this, even though I've never made my own jewelry before. What a way to jump right in, right? And if it works, I know someone who would go gaga over this for a Christmas present!!

So my question is...anyone know how to make flowers like this out of teardrop beads? And are they using headpins that have teeny pearls on them? Or are those separate beads? Like I said, I'm brand spankin new to beading, but am determined. So please, if you have any tutorials or tips or advice on doing this, or on how to do the chain like that, etc....I would LOVE LOVE LOVE you forever!  Thanks a bunch everyone!

Looks like teardrop pearl beads with the hole drilled lengthwise, and either a pin with a bead ending, attached to felt at the back, or the pearl is sewn to fabric - thread and needle up through the pearl, and then through a seed bead, and back down through the pearl and the fabric.  I guess you would have to find graduated sizes and try to follow her patterning.  Sounds like the felt is a solid bib like form in the back and either the chains are also sewn to it, or attached in some other way.
