Floral Beads for June

As you probably know by now I have a thing about flowers. I love having them around me, I love their fragrance, their colours, I love looking at paintings, drawings, photographs of them, seed & bulb catalogues and I love making flower beads. I can't believe I haven't put these up here yet but this is my latest foray into floral beads, raised floral beads with a sparkly leaf motif on the back. I originally made raised floral years ago but I couldn't remember how so these are a little bit different and I have to tell you, I rather like this latest incarnation.
