An elegant jewellery set in the style of a delicate corsage.
Twisting silver plated wire is an easy way to make clusters of beads, by adding focal points of pink ceramic beads you can create an elegant jewellery set in the style of a delicate corsage.

As the green glass beads are a mixed packet, your necklace will not be exactly the same as pictured, so play around to make your own clusters.
