Back to those spring days in Paris, I've already made a couple of bouquets of poppies. I can't wait to photograph them! The first has pale white silk outer petals with dark blue silk and black seed beads as the center. The second is a combination of blush, pink and lavender silk with dark pinks, purples and black beaded centers. Wow, I am so excited. I'm planning some more flowers to combine with these that I remember from bouquets I would buy and make for Francesca or myself.
I'll then turn these into statement necklaces, brooches, hair accessories, maybe some rings this time; I had a smaller flower in my hand and thought it would be a lovely solitary piece on the hand.
I'm thinking some of these bouquets would be perfect bridal pieces...the silk and flowers, a natural conclusion I think. I'm also exploring other wearable art ideas.
