Elizabethan Petal Bracelet Variation

My favorite part of designing patterns that teach people how to use new beads is seeing the natural, creative progression that happens when talented people build upon an original concept.

Jewelry designer Kathy Simonds learned how to turn Czech rose petal beads into Elizabethan flowers through her local bead supplier. Her command of the beading craft and impeccable color blending skills are apparent in the advanced modifications she made to the bracelet pattern.

Individually these flowers can be used in all forms of jewelry.  What potential do you see?  If you'd like to learn how to make these flowers, please ask your local bead store to carry Rose Petals 14/13mm.
