Inspiring Arum Lilies

Just got my new copy of Beads and Beyond magazine and I'm really inspired by the winners of the Metal Clay Jewellery Maker of the Year competition. All the pieces were beautiful but I actually prefered one of the shortlisted entries best. Katrina Lucas designed an utterly gorgeous Arum lily necklace. I love it so much that I'm going to make one this weekend and post the finished picture up for you to see how I get on. Katrina's necklace has six flowers but I think it would look divine with one large lily on a silver wire.

That's the best part of design, improving on whatever we see around us. If my necklace is half as good as Katrina's I'll be happy!


  1. I saw a beautiful silver arum lily which had a bead with silver pin set in the centre of the flower. This was to be my next project (when I remember where I saw it!). I look forward to seeing your creation. I'm sure it will be an inspiration to us all.

  2. Hi Annie, your lily idea sounds fabulous. It's really got me thinking about how to add beads to this or certainly otther projects. Do send me a picture of when you've finished, I'd love to see it!
