I mentioned in my Bead and Button show review that I picked up various Swarovski beads at different booths in the market place.
The beads were different sizes, different colors and a few were in different shapes.
I raided my crystal and pearl stash and pulled out beads in similar colors and shapes.
Then, I sat down and started playing. I made a few flower motifs with the beads from my stash and from the soup.
I bought a few packs of 3mm bicones to use instead of seed beads and went to town.
The result is this bracelet, which I call "Leftover Flowers."
With the exception of the snap closure, all the beads are Swarovski. I also used every bead I picked up at the show.
I really like how colorful it is.
I'll be posting this bracelet to Swarovski's Bead and Button Contest Facebook page. There are only a few entries so far, but I bet more will be coming in the next week. If you have time, take a look to see what the other participants made.
