Vintage Beaded Flower

Another favorite from my studio cabinets are lovely beaded flower components from the 1960s.  The seed beads are strung on thin wire and wrapped around each petal of the metal finding.  The petals have serrated edges that help hold the wire in place.  Similar components can easily be created from the many gorgeous findings available today.  The original color of this flower is the lovely blue opal color in the bottom picture.
