been toying with the concept of floral beads. i have held out making these guys for sometime. i am being entirely ghey as to the reason, 'i don't want to mess with the glass, and touch it with a metal tool' ...
i have got over myself a little and just gone and done it with techiniques i gained doing other things.

i ended up with MANY more florals, but sadly, these are the only good shots of them i took. :(
