Alice's Garden Flowers

 This is a new one of my Alice's Garden series of flowers.  They are in two pieces so they are really 3 dimensional.  I have been making jewelry with them for a bit.  Check out my posts here and here.
I have just really started listing them on Etsy though.  This one just got listed this evening.

A new version of.........

............a flower power bracelet.  I have been playing with an idea for a Bohemian style bracelet with my Flower Power flower beads for a little while.
I think I finally have one that I like.  It is very simple, but sometimes I think that works better than something that is more complicated. 
I made more than one because I have an art show in Brookings SD this coming weekend.  It is the Brookings Summer Arts Festival and I will be in the park along the road.

New cone shaped focal beads.......

..............are something I have been playing with the last couple of weeks.  I really think they are fun.  And I have a couple of other ideas for necklaces with them this is just the first. 
I have made several of them and a couple are headed for Etsy.  The rest are headed for my next bead show.  That is if they don't find another home first.
