New Beads - Rose Bouquet

I can just picture a lovely bouquet of roses sitting in a mint green vase.

This new set can be found in my Etsy shop.
Several opaque and transparent pink and green glasses were used to make this new set.  I wrapped fine silver wire around some of them and silvered ivory stringer around others.  A few have ivory frit sprinkled on them, and then some have been etched.  It was a nice surprise to find the rosy blush at the mandrel ends (holes) on the minty green ones when I etched them - I love that, and it ties in so nicely with the pinks.  Probably won't be able to replicate it - lol!
