|'Almost Orchid'. I spent more then a year on that work... First I was taken over by 'Ember Necklace' for Natasha from Canada. But I did not have enough patience to weave all of the branches of the fire line. Then I bought a book where I saw the weaving of a tube that was unfamiliar to me called umbrella. Of course I tried with the beads I had. Recently, Tina from Japan sent me some pictures of fine orchids from an exhibition she visited with her daughter. But only when I read about competition 'The Sea, the Sun and the Flowers' in Russia I could see the whole picture and finished it in a month. You can say the whole world helped me to do that necklace. Thanks to everybody for the inspiration!
