Nancy's Fancy Necklace

We recently got in a HUGE batch of acrylic and resin beads, including fabulous leaves and flowers.  Looking through old beading magazines, we saw some fun examples of acrylic flowers used in fringe-technique necklaces.  This is a favorite technique at Bead World -- we teach it in our popular Flower Garden Bracelet class.  Nancy Katz took on the challenge to create a version for the store, and it turned out amazingly well!  She used a base of size 6 seed beads on SoftFlex.  Then she used Fireline to add the dense fringes.  I think it looks awesome!
