I first discovered them at this same show last year and I was so inspired by their materials that I bought a little of just about everything they had - including a bunch of brass and copper for the first time. It led to the creation of my Memoire Collection.
I love these ruffly leaves. I think they can double as petals or calyx as well.
I almost passed by these rosebuds, but then I saw a couple of really cute examples in the booth of things that could be done with them and I decided to grab a few strands. So, note to all you people who sell your beads at shows - having finished stuff to show off design possibilities is ALWAYS a good idea!
I'm ready for summer and the beach!
