Mid-Week Mutterings - Lucite Flower Necklace

Before I get into my featured necklace I want to pass along my congratulations to my co-winners of the Rings & Things Customer Review drawing! Mara Nesbitt-Aldrich, Maneki, Christy Minnis, and Jody Blackwell - Congratulations! I feel really lucky this week - I think I'll play SuperLotto tomorrow.

My July bead of the month selection from The Beadin' Path had seven colorful Lucite flowers. Red, pink, purple, two green roses, orange and yellow. I chose the yellow and orange flowers to make a necklace because I had the yellow beads out from the Sunflower Starry Night bead necklace and knew I had several packages of a bright 4mm orange (hyacinth) Druk beads in my stash. By the way, the yellow and orange Druk beads are from Artbeads, their selection of these is quite good, in many colors and finishes, and they're a staple in my designs.

I strung the first strand as seen above, but thought I would add another.

Not completely sure if it's going to stay this way...still seems to be missing something. I think it needs more Lucite flowers and probably another strand of beads.

P.S. - A word from our sponsor:

I'm waiting on an order from Beadin' Path to finish it up - I think it's gonna be wild and wacky when I'm done. Pretty sure it'll be at least 4 strands :-D

Hi Dawn!

Your necklace has such a lush tropical feel to it. What fun colors you used! Makes me want to book a flight to Hawaii.

Thanks for sharing this.

Thanks Duchess! I have several bright Hawaiian shirts and those were front of mind when I did this necklace. Wish I could get on a flight to Hawaii, too - maybe next year.
