Here are some free shapes and color combinations for you to use!
These Freebies probably won't mean much to you unless you've learned to use the loop stitch to make the raised flower design, but I've included them anyway.
This brooch has a double-bugle bead fringe like the Red Queen seen on the Gallery page.
Feel free to add crystal in the tips of Row 3 petals and your fringe. You can mix sizes of beads, such as 10's, 11's, and 12's to obtain the color combination you want.
