......Clare Scott with her suggestion of dahlia beads. This was really hard actually to decide. I narrowed it down to lotus beads, dahlia beads, petal beads and desert rose beads. I could not decide.....so I showed pictures of the various flowers to my husband and he decided on dahlia. Please also take some time to have a look at Clare's beads here
The dahlia is also co-incidentally my mum's fav flower so I think one is definitely in order for her!!!
Thank you so much Clare and to everyone who suggested names I have spent some time looking at some totally gorgeous pictures and one last mention to the suggestion of Rosette Nebula google it and have a look it is a spectacular sight!!!
