Raised Florals Added


So, here is the bead pictured below, with raised floral accents added. I'm not sure if I like it better with, or without. I would love to know your opinion! This is my first attemp at "lapping" a bead, and it's really only the second encased floral focal I have done. I'm sure there will be much improvement as I practice in the weeks to come!

I really like it with the raised flowers added. To me, it finishes it off perfectly. Definitely a technique that I can see evolving into some crazy cool beads! Great work!

Hi Lisa,

I love your beads! And I agree with Lisa that the added flowers finishes the beads perfectly.

It's a brilliant technique and I will be glad If you show us more beads in this style.

Thanks a lot
