Flowers for the Queen - A Bead Embroidered Necklace with an AH HA Moment

I'm so excited to share this piece with you today!  In creating this necklace, it stretched me outside the box and allowed me to grow.  First, let me show you Flowers for the Queen!
One of a Kind Art Jewelry - Bead Embroidered Necklace

You can read the full story of how Flowers for the Queen came to life here.  Part of the romance behind this piece is that the flower on the focal is a real flower.  I purchased the pendant because I love bringing natural elements together with man made beads to create something special.  It feels like I'm honoring Mother Earth while sharing my creative talents and gifts.  So the dried, pressed flower on this pendant spoke to me... but here was the kicker... the flower was yellow.

Did you read that right???? YELLOW???  I know, I was as shocked as you were!  It's a big challenge for me to get into a yellow or orange creative space.  I love the colors, I just don't design with them often.

So thus, I had to think outside of the box and incorporate a beautiful happy yellow, along with two of my favs turquoise and brown.  Hope you like the piece.  I have many more photos posted on my website along with the whole story of how I designed this piece.  

I hope you enjoy story and can see the same beauty in this necklace I saw while creating it!  It exudes happiness and love!

Make it a terrific week!
