~ Frosted Acrylic Flower Beads ~

I love frosted acrylic flower beads!!! They are so dainty and romantic and full of possibilities. Whether it's lucite, resin, or plain acrylic, I like them all! You may ask, what's the difference between those 3? As far as I know, lucite is more durable and it's a brand like Swarovski. Check out my personal collection.


I have a thing for organizing by color. I don't even want to use any of these because I just love the way they look in the box.


On my last haul for my supplies shop, I couldn't resist getting some! My supplier only stated that these are acrylic so I am not going to say they are lucite. I have already listed some, but have plenty more. So, here's a preview. These little heart shaped leafs are so adorable!


I made this set just for Valentine's day.




Simple daisies....


Big pansies.....


Another big flower...


I think these are more like pendants.


My favorite little bell flowers. This set is for UIUC :)


This set is for Easter.


These look like tropical flowers to me. They are pretty big.


These butterflies are cute! I don't know what to do with them though.


So, I put together a box that has a little bit of everything for those who would like to start out their acrylic flowers collection. It will be up in my shop soon!


Just for inspiration, here's what I have made with acrylic flower beads...




And here are some more jewelry made with similar beads I found on Etsy. This is from tabbytoo.

This is from Dalim.


What will you come up with when you get these flowers?
