BIG REVEAL.....“THE GARDEN of Louisette“



My beads, with bunch of hearts and chocolates, came from Audrey Bélanger / Québec/ http://esperianterra.blogspot.ca/.

If you've noticed I have a problem to call it “soup ” ….. from a letter I found that “the focal has a bit of history behind”…. Audrey used dry flowers to create focal from her mother’s garden, who is ,sadly, no longer with us, but Audrey and her father keeping garden in her memory….So, Dear reader, you can understand that  I could not just “cook a soup” …I was growing a garden!!!!!! “THE GARDEN of  Louisette “   edges on Audrey’s focal I covered  with seed beads ,crystals and mounted on silk flower  …. the rest of the necklace amethyst beads “occupied” by fairies, butterfly’s,  even, a bird on the end of the toggle clasp…



THANK YOU AUDREY for the beautiful ...beads!!!!
