Sculpture Flower Bead

Using a set of new toys invented by fellow bead artist, Karen Leonardo, I made this flower pendant. The petals were made using her petal puller tool, kept warm on a hot plate, and added to a tabular bead. The whole process takes up to one hour and there are plenty of room for improvement but I am happy with the progress so far. This bead measures 46mm diameter or about 1-5/8".
