Progress update on the sculptured roses

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.)

Countdown to Valentine’s Day

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.

Valentine's Day mix.
