My entry for The January Challenge "Operation Tackle That Bead Stash"

Every month Operation Tackle That Bead Stash always holding an interesting challenge with interesting gift also. And I have been participating in the challenge for quite some time now. The January challenged was to created something inspired by a famous painting. If you interested about this challenge please visit here.
After searched on the internet, I found this lovely painting by Vincent van Gogh. And this painting suits my interest of making applique on polymer beads.

"Blossoming Almond tree"
Vincent van Gogh

 At first I made this polymer cabochon with flower applique for my focal beads. I decided to use pink instead of white for the flower, after my daughter who always "helping" me insisted that pink is better than white :-D. Well I thought it would work too.
Here it is the beads I made.

After I found my focal beads, I also made some beads to completed this necklace. I made two tube shaped beads and also some round beads in pink and green.
