White Flowers Beaded Purse

I completed several beadwork projects (and began several more) during the year I took off from blogging. Here's the first of many I have to show you, the White Flowers Purse. I'd already blogged about the two panels that make up the body of the purse. The strap is made of hematite beads and Delicas in some of the colors from the panels. I had added fringe but decided it drew the eye away from the flower panels. Since I wanted the flowers to be the focal point, the fringe came back off. What do you think?

How cute is that? I would love to learn how to start beading. I bout some tools with the intention of making earrings and necklaces but i did not get very far. Your work is beautiful and you make me want to try again.

Glad you like it Tamara. If you want instructions to help you learn I recommend getting the book Jewelry Making and Beading. It's a really good one. Just click on this link to see it on Amazon. I like doing that with Amazon because I can read the reviews from others and also see inside the book before ordering, even if I order it elsewhere.
