This necklace reminds me of those big colorful daisy flowers. Are they Blanket Flower? Gaillardia? I am terrible at remembering plant names. The flowers look like daisies on steroids and come in bright, intense colors. I like ’em!
I realized lately that I’ve been making a lot of bracelets, and very little of anything else. Deciding to change that, I thought I’d see what could be done with some of the shaped beads in the stash. This string of daisies is the result. Bright. Light. Fun.
Each flower is made from Super Duo / Twin beads, with a glossy brown druk as the center. The flowers were then joined into a garland. The bright green 15ºs provide a leafy accent. There are three different types of yellow, two different pinks and a hot tamale orange.
It’s not a long necklace, maybe 16 inches or so. A nice little something – something.
