Show Me Sunday - Flower Beads with Rebecca Anderson

Happy Sunday Art Bead Scene-ers, how's your week been? I hope you're all finding lots of bead down time. As you read this, I am not in my usual location of Manchester, England, but am instead in Milan, Italy! My partner is at a work conference here, and I have come along for the ride. Very exciting! I'll be looking out for bead shops, of course. 

We got some really gorgeous shares this week - thank you ladies! First up is Hazel of Continuum Designs, who showed us her pretty Lakeside bead set:

Hazel always makes such pretty and feminine designs - take a minute to look through her shop, it really is worth a visit.

Tiffany of In Love With Saturday has a whole load of flower-inspired beads in her shop. Take a minute to peel at her shop too if you are able, there were so many pretties that she shared in the comments last week - thank you Tiffany! My favourite was this blossom tree focal:

I just love the colours that Tiffany has used here.

And last but by no means least, Mary Harding shared a beautiful copper flower, which has sadly for us but not for somebody, sold out now. 

 Lovely, Mary! Really unusual and what a gorgeous patina. 

I took a peek through Mary's shop and couldn't resist sharing this lovely pendant as well - this one is still available, as I type at any rate! I love the vibrant and joyful colour scheme here.

This week has been a bit of a scramble, preparing to go on holiday, get all my normal work done, plus I managed to have nine magazine projects to write up before I left on the 15th! Phew. So you will have to forgive me and forgo the usual treasury. I promise to create an really cracking one for next week! Leave me your links and I will share your flower art beads here next week. 

Have a good week ABS-ers!
