Porcelain Flower Pattern

This is such a cute bead! The flower is very simple and with the contrast of blue on white, it appears very sweet and dainty. It reminded me of a collectible china pattern. As a result of watching a little too much of BBC's Cash in the Attic, I know the blue and white pattern was used in English china to emulate the look of Chinese pottery from the 1500's.

If you know anyone who collects the blue and white china, a jewelry item using this type of bead would be a great gift!
