Hi everyone. I have had these beads for quite awhile, and was never quite sure how to incorporate them into cute designs. I particularly loved the flowers and how shimmery they are, but when I hung them, the whole effect and design was lost. I finally found a way to get them displayed the way I like. I call the hooks half hoops. I never saw this shape before, but I figure someone has done this before. Let me know what you think.

Simple and pretty

I call these calypso coconut..they reminded me of a delicious ice cream I had recently with that same name. It has tons of colourful fruit mixed in it..yummy.Anyhow I used sea turqouise, crystal rondelles, multi colour beads and pearls.

those flowers are beautiful! great way to hang them, i can see how they wouldn't look as stunning without a good view of the front of them, nice work
