THE BEADS ARE JUST COMING INTO FLOWER

Gosh, it's almost March and oh yes, spring fever is on its way. I have been busy making floral beads, mainly focals. Boy, I've forgotten how much time could be easily spent on making one floral bead, especially when you make two layers of flowers and the compound petaled flowers. I am so hooked on making floral beads that it is difficult to think of anything else presently! Here are some beads I made over the past days. Besides floral beads, I've began making hollow beads again, right below is a hollow bead as well as a very colorful bead set. Yes, the beads are for sale, please email me at dora@doraschubert.com if you're interested in buying them - thank you! Enjoy your weekend!
