Here is what I made for the Fusion Beads Blog Hop hosted by Lorelei Eurto! She picked out several items from the Fusion Beads website and a bunch of designers are making things with those items... Today's blog hop shows all of those wonderful things!
I chose this challenge because I really liked the colors and there were some things I had never worked with before. First, the vintage lucite leaves were new to me. The official blog hop color was out of stock, so I chose a similar color. I really liked them... so lightweight and such pretty colors and shimmer! I had also never worked with the teardrop seed bead shape. I really like the way they string together and form an irregular, organic shape. I doubled up my strands to exaggerate this effect even more.
