This is my absolute FAVORITE piece I think I have ever made! I took the rose quartz donut and netted around it and then added my own little flower garden! I really hope you enjoy it!

How beautiful!  How long did it take to make it?  It looks like there are a lot of little details, which makes it even more cute  Smiley

Thanks everyone! It took total about 7-8 hours to make, but that is because it was trial and error with the netting of the donut. But once that was done and the stringing the embellishing of the side only took about 3 hours to make sure everything was just right. I actually had to go out and get more swarovski beads because I ran out about half way through....

That's really beautiful. I find those doughnut beads quite tricky to display really elegantly and that's a fabulous way of doing it. Plus the asymmetry makes it visually interesting and keeps the detail from overwhelming the focal bead. Even my boyfriend said "that's pretty, it's really elegant"!

(Running out of Swarovski beads is something that happens to me in my nightmares... Cheesy)

Wow! I don't think I could find anything to wear it with, but what a gorgeous color scheme, design, and execution. I can see how it's your favorite.

I used to think I didn't have anything to wear it with too... Then I made something similar and realized with just a plain tee and jeans it would go... Just another reason why I like it so much. It's just so versatile.

That is absolutely  gorgeous.  Where did you find the pattern/instructions to do the netting part?
