4. Blooming Beads
First crocus emerge, pushing the snow away with sheer determination, then the purple irises reappear. I love watching my garden come back to life after the long, gray winter. I can’t talk about spring without mentioning flowers. As beaders, we don’t have to wait for the sprouts to bloom to enjoy flowers. We bring the outside in with our flower-inspired jewelry. The March 2017 issue of Bead&Button
magazine features 15 botanical-themed projects and its online counterpart, facetjewelry.com
, offers more free projects. We’ve all come a long way from daisy chains.
