Something from the latest 'Bead Magazine'

I loved the look of these flowers in the magazine. But, blimey, HOW MUCH WORK were they!!! I only made one and am hoping to turn it into a brooch. I did get better at the orphan peyote stitch as I went along, but many of the earlier petals had to be cut up and restarted!

Crikey that looks complicated!! Very pretty. With the colours its almost starfish like. Beautiful.

Blimey! That is one intricate piece of jewellery.
Think I'll be ordering one of those to match a lariat for MIL's xmas pressie.
Note it down! ;)
