A Thing for Daisies

Yes, I have a thing for daisies! When I first started stringing beads, I had seen a pattern for a daisy chain using seed beads. I worked at it until I got it and made the cutest little bracelet.

I never made another daisy chain after that because I was so busy stringing beads! (okay, I mean "obsessed" with stringing beads! :)

However, anytime I see daisy beads or, in this case, scrapbooking embellishments, I can't seem to help myself!

I am working on a new papercraft project right now and when I got out my new daisy brads, I immediately remembered these cute $1 chains I had picked up recently.

All I did was put the little prongs through the chain link and using pliers, looped the prongs back over the chain link and voila, a sweet little daisy bracelet and I still have plenty of daisies left in the pack for my project. :)

Yay!

How cute. I may not be obsessed but daisies beads do draw my attention when I see them and I'm always temped to buy them. I have to repeat "You don't know what to make with them, you don't know what to make with them." to keep myself from buying.

I love daisies too!!! I wanted my wedding bouquet to be daisies, but it didn't work out that way. I got a few daisies thrown in there though.

I have scrapbooking friends and I have jewelry making friends. I bet we could get together and explore a whole lot of possibilities! Thanks for the daisies! They're so cheerful.
