Mini Roses. A couple of years ago, I started on Moss Roses from Bead Design by Ruth Wasley and Edith Harris. The pattern has been adjusted and changed so that it has now become my own. I'd wanted to develop a beginner type pattern and this became it. This will (hopefully) be on display at a new local bead store and I'm really hoping that leads to more opportunities for me.
As you can see, there's lots of greenery here. I never liked making greenery but I have found that it does help to complete the arrangement. I also tried to demonstrate how different beads can look. So what do we have here? A total of 24 stems, 6 per color.
