one operation,three weeks to the next,so time has to go to the practicalities of my life. I promise to return and do better. The more detailed photos are on Pinterest, Denise Milward, BeadSoup 2017.

I have really enjoyed the snatched hours to design and make up the unusual beads sent to me by Melissa – a multitude of thank you so to her!  You can see what Melissa made from the beads I sent to her here.

  3. Dorota says:

    absolutely stunning “floral” necklace!!

  4. I love the photos, too. They are playful and wonderful. Great use of chain. You did a beautiful job. Thanks for sharing so much inspiration with us.

    Beautiful Denise! I love the lightness — airiness! — of the designs, and the pops of white and yellow amongst the blues. I love the idea of framing those flower beads too. The beadwoven necklace really complements the big focal, makes it stand out beautifully! I’m glad you had so much fun with my soup, and super happy that it gave you a much-needed boost during a difficult time healthwise. (oh and I love that ladybird visitor too! How perfect!)

  6. I am in LOVE with all the flowers! Really, really cool design. And I had Rick look up “naff” because I thought I knew what it meant, and Rick had lived in England, but we weren’t sure, and I laughed like crazy when he found the acronym. Your photos are FINE, girl! And your designs are lovely, lovely, lovely.

    Thank you so much for participating!

    Wow, you sure were busy, some very amazing designs came out of those hoarded beads. Very very pretty!!!

  12. Hi Denise, The aqua color group is my favorite so I really like all of your designs. You combined components very well. The silver and aqua pendant is stunning. Great photos.

    Each piece is lovely. Love how you combined different materials, particularly in the yellow and blue necklace.

    You completed so much with so much going on. You should be proud.

    I love your seed bead work! I so admire the patience that takes. It’s beautiful!

    • milwardstory says:

      Thank you. The amount of seed beads is comparatively small,but I do like to use them. They’re very good at calming me down sometimes,if I’m a bit fed up, because you really have to focus on them so it gets rid of bad stuff!

  16. Lucy Clasen says:

    Love the creativity and the fun photos.

  17. beadlove says:

    Love your designs, especially the first necklace. I love the turquoise/yellow color combination. It’s so fab. And the wonderful tassel! Oh so lovely.

  18. Love the pop of yellow with the blues!
