More Cards and Beads

This is a necklace I just finished.
When I bought the beads I thought I got #11's
BUT I picked up #15's by mistake which are a lot smaller!
It meant it took longer to bead...sigh..
The silver beads in the rope are #13 charlottes... very small too but oh so pretty as they have one flat side which reflects the light and sparkles!!!! You all know how I LOVE sparkle! VBG



The postcard is another felted one using the wool rovings. I tried to express a feeling of Spring, and titled it "Springtime" Note the wee bird's nest in the tree on the left with blue eggs....The flowers along the path are dandelions... Usually one of the first flowers to raise their heads when the snow is gone and the robins are singing

Beautiful! both the card and the beads, I am amazed at how you managed such fine detail with rovings, the little flowers. Great.

Love the detail on your card. Yes I know about the dandelions, I have a bumper crop in my yard. I don't mind the flowers as long as I can get to the seeds before they open up. The little yellow flowers are so pretty.
Your necklace is awsome. You do such wonderful work an on things that take soooo much time. But that's the things that are worth it.
Hope you have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Pat
