The Sunflowers have returned.....





Now a while back I had done several sunflower themed pieces, and there were some bead embroidered centers (both browns and greens) left over that I have just not done anything with until now.

These little gems are post earrings that are 1.75 inches in diameter. I wasn't sure that I would like the look of the rectangular bugle beads as the petals, but I'm real pleased with the effect.





In this close up of the edge, its easier to see the details of the work.

Along with these brown centers, I had a pair of green ones that are the same size. I have started working on those as well, and we'll see where that goes -- the main problem is that I don't have enough of those rectangular bugle beads left for another pair, so I'm using regular bugle beads and I'm not sure I like the look as well.

More on that later!

Those look neat! Do you have enough of the rectangular bugle beads left to use them half and half with the regular ones? Maybe that would work...
