I have been experimenting with some new bead shapes. I love making all types of beads, but wanted to try to make a few different shapes. This first one is an almond shape. It is flat with a different flower on each side, but I think that I would make the same flower on each side next time. I really like how the purple flowers come down on the ends and the leaves show from the sides.
I also tried some round teardrop shape beads. I really like these also. They were not as hard to make as the almond shape. I plan on making some angel earrings with the teardrop shape.
