Lilies and Willow Inspirations

I pulled out some of my bead molds and revisited a few older designs today. I was super inspired by the current Art Bead Scene's challenge, check it out! And I'm seriously day dreaming about summer which has me thinking of flowers. My favorite flowers are lilies and in particular tiger lilies. So I started there with pendants and a oval pendant/connector that could be used as a bracelet focal. 

I also pulled out my Willow designs and whipped them up into pendants and headpins. And my final design that I worked up today was a feather. Who doesn't love listening to the birds sing this time of year?

I pulled out Czech beads that matched each combination. 

Be sure to stop by the Art Bead Scene to see my color inspirations for these new beads. Below are a few design ideas from previous projects using these focals and headpins.
