Natural inspiration..

Today, in keeping with typical British tradition, our summer weather is patchy sunshine at best, monsoon style downpours at worst! Can't really complain though, seeing as we were forcast a drought a couple of months ago.

Anyway, whilst wandering around the garden after a particularly heavy shower to see what flowers had survived I came across these dainty beauties which I thought looked really pretty 'accessorised' by the rain drops.

I was sat staring at the picture later on, thinking about how they would look pretty as a piece of jewellery when I had a small flash of inspiration and decided to get out some of my flower beads & crystals and here's the result....

flower charm necklace

If you would like to see how to make the charm cluster on this necklace pop on over to my new 'Tutorials' page for a free step-by-step guide (I'd love to see yours if you make one!)

Happy Making!
