Here's one I made, stopping after I made the first row of daisy cubes. (I used 37 cubes)
I made a Chevron strap for this one too.
The orginal necklace made in iris bronze, and the one I made while doing the tutorial made with transparent Montana blue seeds and iris blue cubes.
Remember to email your pictures to me of this necklace if you want to show them on this page! :)
Here's a bad picture of the necklace being worn. I didn't have anyone around to take the pic, so I had to take it in the mirror. lol Anyway, it shows the length and where it rests. ;)
Ida sent this beauty! She added picots to the bottom loops which gave the necklace a whole new look. She said, " I used size 11 2035 Matte Metalic Mauve Green and 4mm cubes # 2631 which is a Peridot lined bronze."
Beautiful job Ida!
Sue, a new beader from Canberra isn't one to wear necklaces much, so she used the basic stitches and created this wonderful bracelet! I love it when someone can take a basic pattern and turn into something new!
Great work Sue! Thanks for sharing it. :)
This purple beauty was done by Julia. She made a brick stitch strap and added gorgeous spear beads to the bottom. I bet this is a real knockout in person! To see more of Julia's great work, click here.
Thanks Julia! I love the changes you made!
Ahh.....hematite.....my favorite bead color!! ;) When I originally wanted to do this necklace, I envisioned it in hematite, but sadly didn't have enough cubes to do it. So I was thrilled when Angeline sent this pic of her fab version. I love it!
This stunner was sent by Josee from Quebec. She said, "I made mine with black matte cubes and silver-lined transparent 10's. It was a pleasure to make, and it looks very elegant."
I agree! It does look very elegant. She plans to do the next one in bronzes, and I can't wait to see it!
Julie, aka Trillian, sent this beautiful example and made great matching earrings! She used Miyuki Trans. Light Amethyst cubes, and size 11 dark topaz, Czech seeds.
I love the colors, and I love the earrings! Thanks Julie!
Michelle of Creative Sense chose to make hers in lovely lilac and blue. Perfect for spring! I love the large freshwater pearl she added on the center loop! That is really a nice touch!

Sharon, of Belle Beads in New Zealand made this gorgeous golden necklace. She used Goldstone cubes and matte old gold seeds. She also used picots on the bottom loops for a different look. You can see more of Sharon's beautiful beading at her website, or her Picturetrail album site.
Lisa decided to do just one row, and added some fabulous crystal picot drops! She also went small.....she used size 15.0 seeds with 3mm cubes. I bet this is so beautiful on the neck! I get so excited when I see creativity like this that's spawned from a simple pattern. Do yourself a favor and check out Lisa's other beadwork here.
It's truly fabulous work Lisa! Thanks!!
Marie is having a blast with this pattern and has made two beautiful necklaces so far. I love the added bicone beads! One on the bottom of the center loop, and one nestled into the center loop. Very nice work Marie!
Ivy used gorgeous iris beads and green cubes for her version. She also added a chain for an adjustable fit. Very nice! If you'd like to see more of Ivy's beautiful work, click here.

Linda went soft and feminine with her version, using 4mm peach pearl cube beads and size 11 peach ab seeds. She appologized for the blurry picture, but I can still see that it turned out beautifully, and I imagine it's a real stunner in person. :)
This ultra glamorous version was made by Noeline from Australia. She used Matsuno gold seeds and clear AB cubes on the bottom row, with clear cubes on the top row. She wrote that it was much more beautiful in person, and I believe it! That combination of beads makes it a real stand out!
Beautiful work Noeline! Thanks!
This wonderful variation was done by Saskia van Westen from the Netherlands. She said, "I used wooden beads ( braun)( 8mm) and small seed beads (gold) ( 2mm).
Didn't made the bottom loops cause I thought it would be too much and used the wooden beads to make the straps.
Had to adjust the amount of seed beads."
I think it looks great!

Sharon made this beautiful set for a high school reunion fundraiser. She said, "I found these wonderful cubes in my local bead store Alada Beads. The cubes are either dyed/stabilized Chalk Turquoise or Chrysocolla the salesperson didnt know, so I researched on the internet. The seed beads are Czech 11 topaz copper lined transparent. My variation to your gorgeous pattern incorporates the addition of New Jade Dark Green Drops 5x7mm inside the bottom loops. I made the bracelet to match with the same basic components, the New Jade Dark Green beads here are 4x6mm Ovals."
I love the drops Sharon added! And I love the mixture of cubes and oval beads in the bracelet. Nice job Sharon! Thanks for sending in the pictures. :)
Amy sent this picture of a beautiful variation she made. She said, "I took your tutorial for the Cube Daisy Necklace and created 2 separate rows then hooked them together with cubes in the middle and picots around the edge. The pictures don't do it justice in my opinion. The cubes are a very light blue but with the gray beads, they take on some of the gray as well giving them a new, pretty color."
It turned out great! Thanks so much for sharing Amy!

This icy stunner was made by Sue using crystal seeds and Swarovski crystal cubes. I bet it just about knocks your eyes out when seen in person! Beautiful! If you'd like to see more of Sue's work, visit her website.
