Spring Breeze Flower Garden by Jewelrybyjane29 on Etsy


The April Beadweavers challenge is about spring and the warm breezes. We were to create something that looks as bright, delicate and gentle as the first warm breezes of spring. 

When I think of spring I think about the first flowers of the season, poking their way up through the fresh ground that was once frozen, and about their fragrant scent. That is why I created this spring flower garden enclosed by the lattice fence. The fence is made using Delica Rainbow green/yellow seed beads and adorned with Dyna-mite 8/0 beads. The flowers are made using the French bead and wire method. 

The bracelet measures 6 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches 

This is an original Jewelry by Jane 29 Design.
