Also helping with the Spring mood I've had a wonderful new box of DT goodies arrive from Blue Moon Beads this week, full of fresh bright colours While I'm playing and creating with it all I chose some lovely metal bead cones to play with. They have a little flower motive pressed into them so there's a nod to spring there too.
The beads are from the Blue Sky Champagne bead mix tin and the faceted ones are from a JoAnn's Black/Gray bead strand. To wire everything together and attach the pieces to the chain I've used decorative silver tone headpins.
Perhaps some earrings needed to match?
Actually, I made these before I created the necklace, whilst I was experimenting to see which beads fitted best into the cones.
Itching to get my hands on the rest now, I'm in bead heaven.
