Katie....a huge HUG :clap: :D to you. I suck at florals especially encased and your tutorial resulted in this bead. I am so thrilled it really helped me out. I love this bead, it reminds me of a trip I took to Raroutonga a few years back. It's not perfect by far but way better for me than past ones. I can't thank you enough :clap:

I could never do florals until yesterday!! I was running around acting all crazy and had to show DH what the fuss was. Florals were just something I could never do, and now I can't stop! Thank you Katie!!

Here is the direct quote:


The florals are my "cheater" florals.
Base is soft pink, encased with transparent pink. I then use my vine stringer, melt that in, then white dots, melted in then ruby gold over the white dots, melt those in, then poke the center and melt out the holes!! They almost look encased without the hasself of encasing them!! I make them with any color, the key...........opaque base with the same color transparent over that.....AND....a transparent over the dots for flowers. It doesn't have the same effect to just use opaque alone for the flowers. If you want white flowers, just use clear over the white dots!!! ( I also keep the shape of the bead at each step or I am at risk to distort everything)

Hope I am allowed to do that!
