The June pin was inspired by the flower in Lisa Kan's book Bead Romantique. This flower has 4 layers of beads done in herringbone stitch.

May and July bjp pins

The May pin is a peyote ruffle around a rose cathedral rivoli. I found this pattern, designed by Susan Mandel, in the April 2009 Bead and Button magazine.

The July pin is a peyote trillium flower designed by Diane Fitzgerald in her new book, Shaped Beadwork:Dimensional Jewelry with Peyote Stitch.
