I sat down today wanting to create something. I was looking through my public domain images trying to get an idea. As soon as I saw a greeting card with pansies, I knew what I wanted to create. This pansy bracelet is the result of this idea.
Pansies are a hybrid that was bred for a flower garden plant. Even though it is sometimes confused with the Violet, it can be distinguished from the violet because it has 4 petals facing up and 2 petals facing down. Pansies can be found in a variety of colors to include yellow, gold, orange, purple, violet, red, white, and very dark purple. I always thought that they looked like little faces on the flowers. I have loved Pansies for as long as I can remember.
This pattern was tested by my Bead Angel, Terri Ettling-Shell. With a little trial and error that she helped me with, we came up with this wonderful bracelet.
