Martina's flowers

I've mentioned before that my partner, Martina Nagele, from the Bead Soup Party is intimidatingly amazing.  She made her own bead caps for some of the beads I sent her.  Then she adapted the bead cap design into cute dangling flowers which you can see on her blog: http://mariposa8000.blogspot.com 

Well, I tried my hand at them. My colors are a bit more summery, but only when trying to pick things for this project I realize that I have no red seed beads or dark purple ones either.  That still baffles me.  Well here's my go at it:
Looks way better on that flat.
Love that coral with fire-opal center!
These little guys didn't go with the rest.  Not sure what they'll be yet.
Not too bad for one evening's work.  Better for me than a bowl of ice cream too.


  1. Absolutely adorable. I love the circle chain and the bright colors.


Hey Thanks! I love hearing what you think.
