Now if someone would just dust in here.....
You may have seen these before, but here are some past creations.
|Flowers made of book pages.|
|A tissue paper flower Zack made me in preschool, going strong in a hand-painted vase given to me by my friend Katie.|
|Silk Gerbera daisies in my car. Pink for me, and Zack picked orange.|
|A necklace I made and kept in my personal jewelry box. The polymer clay flower is by Jeannie Dukic, the large white beads are Tibetan, and I added a Green Girl Studio piece and navy blue dyed cultured pearls. This appeared in a magazine, and I was very proud of that for me and for Jeannie.|
|I covered a small Styrofoam mannequin with dozens of weathered paper flowers (pinned on with crystal centers), a satin bow, and tiny pewter daisy spacers for a bodice. My first attempt at anything like this, inspired by Cindy Wimmer's many mannequins.|
|I made this for a monochrome bead hop, choosing purple as my color. I made the enameled beads in the background and decorated steel flowers with light purple crystals and darker dyed wood. I really loved this one.|
|And finally, another magazine piece featuring an incredible lampwork disk by Libby Leuchtman, layered with a copper correopsis bloom from Ornamentea. I added turquoise, wood, and Czech glass Libby sent me, hammered a texture into oxidized copper disks, and finished this long necklace with double strands of copper chain. This piece also made the magazine cut some time ago. It's in my personal jewelry box.|
I hope you enjoyed some flowers if it's snowing in your area.
I welcome requests for other photo discoveries hidden in my computer!
