It is size 10 thread, and I will see about the pattern - if I remember correctly, it was worked in a spiral ruffle in a light colour, then edged in pink.  I then attached a floral wire for the stem.  I made some leaves, and holding all the excess thread down along the wire, wrapped floral tape around it.

Beadwise?  I have done at least three or more of these necklaces.  Some simple drop necklaces, several crocheted wire and crystal necklaces, several tigertail and accent bead book thongs.  As well, some bead crochet for two garters, and several of the beaded ornaments - the Victorian style netted ornaments.  Here is a link to some patterns to show what they look like (not the ones I actually did myself):


Right now, I am working on some peyote stitch necklace/chokers that I need to add some accents too.

Nicely done - love the broach and the trim looks perfect.  Lovely colour too.  What yarn did you use?

Two thread carnations I made as a gift for a secret pal exchange I was a part of for another craft site.  I have been planning to make some more for my mom and MIL - just haven't gotten around to it.

but now resides with the ex-GF of my BF (best friend - not boy friend, even though he is a boy) - ex evil GF (who also has a frog afghan I made her with dozens of 3-D frogs)

Here is a netted necklace I did a few years ago.  I have made several since with differing crystals and beads, but they all got given away and this is the only one I have left - the original, and the first netted necklace I have done too (from a pattern from thatbeadlady.com).  I have done some netted Christmas ornaments too - but they were all given away  Cry

Whoo hoo!!!!  Scarborough is a wasteland for craft supplies since Lewiscraft and Michaels are gone - I go to BeadFX sometimes, which is near there, so this is fantastic to know about!

Don't forget places like Value Village, Goodwill, Salvation Army for things too - sometimes you can find some really neat stuff there - good sweaters to felt and cut, or unravel (make sure they were woven or knitted whole, and not sewing pieces), old jewelry, lamps, etc.

Also there is Sassy Bead Company on Yonge, near Eglinton (a bit pricey).  Also BeadFx in Scarborough, and I heard that there is a new bead store near BeadFx too (they are at Warden and Eglinton roughly).

Definitely great for holding beads, sewing notions, etc.  If they are large enough, they would be good as yarn/thread/twine holders - drill a hole in the top to pull the thread/yarn, etc through.  As well, if they are of an attractive shape, you could probably podge them and make vases or small planters.  If they are glass, what about cutting the tops off, decorating them with beads and wire to make hanging votive holders for outside.  Or bird feeders.  If they are glass - you could etch or paint them, and they would be good vases, etc.

Paint them with a glass paint - like Gallery Glass, or the more permanent bakeable paints like the ones from Pebeo (they also have leading paints).  Or use an etching agent like Armour Etch to etch a nice design on - those are my two favourite methods of decorating glass items.  Or you could bead a cover over the base with beads, and wire.  Or sew/crochet/embroider/decoupage a cover for it.
