Bluebells and Butterflies

Not too long ago I listed a necklace in my Etsy shop that I called Lavendar Garden. I had so much fun making it that I decided to do a similar one in different colors. Guess it's my spring fever, but I seem to be stuck on green right now. I had gotten some lovely soft green mother of pearl leaf beads recently and of course they jumped right out at me from my work desk. Right beside them were some silver butterfly charms, another recent purchase, and they found their way into my bead tray too. Now, what to go with the green? As I searched thru my stash of seed beads looking for the leaf green, my eye landed on a soft translucent blue and I remembered the little Czech glass flower beads I had in the same shade. Perfect! The finished piece makes me think of walking through a meadow on a warm sunny day when the wildflowers have started blooming and the butterflies are dancing on the breezes.
