Flowers for Patricia - EBW Spring Swap

It is always fun to stretch ones comfort zone just a bit.
To be honest, I am not so fond of beaded flowers (actually any man-made flowers that is). However, sometimes, beaded flowers can be pretty, and what is much more interesting - they can be challenging to make.

Another thing that I am not comfortable with, is a combination of green and pink. Once again, when put in the context of "challenge" it is becoming a really fun thing to try!

This necklace was made for Patricia Vener, a talented beader from the U.S., a fellow member of Etsy Beadweavers Team. I am trying myself in ndebele stitch, making beaded flowers, and mixing greens and pinks ;)

To see more of absolutely wonderful creations that my team members made for the Spring Swap, please visit the blogpage of Christine's Beadwork.

I am patiently waiting for my swap piece by our dear Naan... It was sent from Italy couple of days ago, but, together with most of the European airmail, has been delayed by the volcano in Iceland. No comments ;) Just hope it arrives safely! I adore Naan's spirit and the beadwork that she does. It is going to be a nice surprize, I am more than sure about it.

It turned out fabulous! It's another thing I love about swaps and challenges, it makes you explore techniques and colors you wouldn't normally consider.
