Photos of the bookmarks I made at last. Taking these photos has made me aware of how difficult it is to take a good photo of something so small. Holiday snaps are so much easier.
They are twisted wire and bead concoctions. Don't twist too much or the wire snaps off (which I only did once) but twist enough so you don't have silly floppy beads (that took a few more attempts to get right).
The little leaf beads are most obliging in this way, but the longer leaf beads still have a degree of movement that rather suits them with these bigger flowers.
And then of course there were a couple of orchids. I think next time I might not even bother with the leaves.
They were such a joy to make.
