Lace and Bead Necklaces

I have started making necklaces with lace,since I have discovered that I really love lace!I found this really pretty cream alecon lace remnants,and started cutting them out for appliques.I am going to use some of them on a dress(with silk crepe,I think),but I started making necklaces with them and different beads,and I really like it.Since I have a limited amount of this particular lace with this pattern,I think I will only make 5 or so more.But I will be on the look out for more pretty lace to use in my necklaces.:)
The last one,
Lace Necklace with Robin's Blue and Eggplant Purple Beads
,can be bought in my etsy shop,JennysTreasuresForU.
The rest can be put in my shop at request.I have one more,not shown here,with cream seed beads and olivine/olive green crystals.

A Pretty Silk Flower Accessory

While browsing an etsy seller's feedback,I found this cute silk chiffon flower by Bloom and Co for $15.00
It measures 3-4 inches and is entirely hand stitched.Having cut up a bunch of tulle for my tulle earrings,I can certainly appreciate the work she put into these.She can also attach a barrette to it.
I think this would look really pretty as a bridal wreath with 3 of the big ones in back and small rosebud appliques in front and ribbon steamers in the back.And a veil,if you want.

Picture Inspiration

I found this lovely picture on someone's facebook,and just had to share.Isn't it lovely?
(And the person had put "The Spirit and the Bride say come"underneath it.There's this song I need to find that has the line in it.I used to sing to that song over and over.)
