blaue blume

blue flowers are a romantic symbol of desire & unreachable love.

i love these inspirational little blue flowers because they bloom by the thousands in the early, early spring and promise that winter is almost over.

these little blue blossom beads were made the same way as the previous 'spring blossoms' entry.
each bead is no bigger than my thumbnail.

the colors used were white encased in clear for the center. the extra long petals are opalino blue, the tips are a darker blue because i added a small dot of transparent blue to end of each petal before pulling and shaping it
