This is my largest rose yet… The picture makes it look better than it actually is. There are a couple gaps down at the base where I joined the petals and the shape could be best described as “wonky”. Also, I can see a crack in one of the petals in the picture that I didn’t see with the naked eye. Sigh. Still… Progress and I’m happy with it.
Oooh. Look at all those petals! (But not too closely.)
I wasn’t sure how I would like this sculptured rose on a necklace, but I think I love it.
I actually started on my Valentine’s Day beads early (totally unlike me.) I had so much fun playing with my new rose presses from Devardi and I also dusted off the heart press I bought last year but didn’t really use because I sucked at it. Hope to make some more things over the weekend. I might even make a couple sets and list them on Etsy.
