Stupid beading tricks: Orange flower

July 14, 2014

I bought this enameled pendant from Jade Scott back in 2012, and of course all of the ideas I had for it disappeared as soon as I received it. So I saved it. And waited. And waited.

One night, the little orange seed beads in one of my bead boxes grabbed my attention. I used some antique brass half-hard wire to create a chain, and then I added the pendant. But it didn’t look right.

I let it sit some more, and realized I had teal round beads (probably dyed glass) that matched the flower petals. And this necklace was born.
