Just a quick post today to let you know that I have added another pattern to my website. The new Spine Flower pattern is now available to purchase from this page of my website. The actual project is to make a pendant or brooch but this little flower has lots of other potential too. It works well as a single flower but it would be easy to make several and attach them to each other to make a bracelet or necklace - they would also fit in well with other finished beadwork and I can imagine several of them nestling amongst some lovely beaded foliage for an elaborate collar.
As you can see, you can alter the look of these flowers by changing the colours - from softly feminine pinks to more vivid colours which really makes the spines 'pop', or you might like to leave out the stripes and make your flower in a single colour which changes the look again. Whatever you decide to do, have fun with your Spine Flowers and don't forget to send me a picture!
Bye for now!
