"Twin Roses" is my answer to The Challenge. For anyone not familiar with the Challenge, Beadwork magazine sends the same pack of beads to three designers and a reader chosen at random. I was honored to be selected as a designer and loved being challenged with beading components I wouldn't normally use. The heavy Lucite flowers are not something I would have thought of including but I love how this turned out. I just submitted "Twin Roses" as a project for Beadwork magazine and if they accept it I'll be making it up in another colorway to send in with the instructions. I'd love to hear what colorway people would like to see so if you have a preference please let me know by leaving a comment.
My next submission is my Swarovski tile bracelet which I'm planning on submitting to Bead & Button.
