The yellow flower beads happened to be on the table next to the turquoise beads while I was beading – they make a great match in this set!

  • Instructions
  • Supplies

Yellow flower beads stand out like a pop of sunshine when paired with turquoise tones. Becky used them with Vintage beads and small fire-polished beads in earrings and a bracelet. She made sure to add some fibers to each piece. Tassels add more movement to the earrings, and a silk ribbon finish on the memory wire bracelet allows you to adjust the size to your liking. You can watch Becky and Cynthia make this set and other pieces with the vintage beads on our Facebook page.
