Woodland Flower Necklace

Here is a photo of a new idea I tried... incorporating some beading, flower shaped buttons and splashes of color to create this woodland flower necklace. An ornate copper colored button is a focal point. Shades of brown, amber crystal beads, copper colored filigree beads and touches of pink and yellow seed beads make up the beads that go around the neck.
