Fresh Flower Jewellery
What's flower jewellery, you maybe asking yourself. Well I had never heard of it either until I took a trip to the Spring Florist Event recently.
There was a stand there run by the Dutch Flower Council where you could have a go at making jewellery made from real flowers. This really appealed to my creative instincts.
The idea behind flower jewellery is that it is a fun way for florists to get customers into their shop, and actually get them hands-on with flowers.
Go On, I Dare You!
But I thought some of the more adventurous brides among us, may love this idea for their wedding.
Now before I go any further, this isn't for everyone. If you're a bit of a traditionalist, this may not be for you. But if you want to really get heads turning and tongues wagging, flower jewellery is ideal!
Below is a necklace that I made from mini calla lilies. The framework is flexible wire. Pearl beads have been incorporated to accent the design. The whole creation is surprisingly light and easy to wear.
That's me modeling the necklace with my weekend clothes on - you need to use your imagination, and think of it with a beautiful dress on.
Below I've used similar calla lilies in a wrist corsage / bangle. We normally choose smaller more delicate flowers to make wrist corsages, such as Singapore orchids or roses. But here I've thrown caution to the wind
Because the wire is flexible, it is easy to shape it once on your wrist. By doing this you can make it stay in place even when you move your arm.
Flower jewellery is a lot fun to create, and has almost endless possibilities. And it is sure to get you noticed, whether you are walking down the aisle or walking down the high street. Enjoy It!
