Beaded Stainless Steel Rose

Beaded Stainless Steel Rose

Name: Beaded Stainless Steel Rose
Bead quality: Poor
Wired: Yes
Date finished: Summer 1998
Notes: I may like beading animals the most, but that does not prevent me from beading plants too. This is my beaded representation of a Stainless Steel Rose. My dad had a few rose bushes, and the Stainless Steel was my favorite of them. Unlike my other beading projects, this one was more 2D based, and I did each petal individually before putting them all together. I also made this rose into a pin. While I was making it, my family had taken a trip to see relatives in another state. Mainly my grandma. I'm not sure exactly what spurred me to do so, but I decided to give the rose to my grandma as a gift. Sadly she died a year or so later. Of all the things she had, the only thing I wanted was to have the rose back.
