Every time I see bead caps in this blooming tulip design I want to Buy. Them. All. Something about that graceful organic shape just gets me.
Dangling Swarovski crystals on short lengths of chain from the center of the flower continues that elegant flowing feel. I also decided to jazz up the chain with a few crystals as well.
Did you notice that I only had a short piece of that long/short chain? Since it wasn’t long enough for a full necklace I used it for the center portion only, adding similar chain around the sides and back. Another great trick for using up what you have on hand!
The end cap that I used is the 22x15mm Antique Silver Blooming Tulip from ArtBeads.com. In the supply list I give links to several other tulip end caps in differing colors. Just be sure to double check which size you are getting as they vary quite a bit.
