Summer Fun

flower garden braclet
This is my Summer Fun Challenge entry for the ArtFire Beadweaver's guild Challenge. I'm up here in the woods of Michigan away from my photography equipment but managed to get some nice shots with my sweeties help!. I was thinking what makes summer fun? I enjoy flowers and know that people enjoy gardening. If I had the health to have a garden, I would have a huge one. I do grow some orchids so I draped it over the one of the three orchids that are blooming and I like the picture. I usually shy away from props but I am trying! It's called Flower Garden beadwoven bracelet.
         This Bracelet was fun to work on. I used three common flower patterns that most beaders learn when they start beading, Daisy stitch two variations and Nepal chain stitch. Then I thought why not over a fence, then I found some findings that I had wanted to use for awhile now. Then  it all came together.
