Just a few more days to prepare for the Christmas show, and I’d promised myself I’d make some simpler flowers that could be priced a little lower. Then I spotted the pearly pink floss at the back of my stash. Who could resist it, especially when I had those lovely pink Swarovski crystals and teardrops just waiting to dress up a flower. So, abandoning my plan, I pulled out my spindle and set about to make a very special flower.
Here’s a photo of the finished piece. I have to say I’m happy with it! I had some 32 gauge wire in hot pink …. too thin to use on it’s own, so I twisted two strands together and used it to outline the petals and make the leaves. I wanted to add something more than just leaves, so made some petals to form ‘buds’ and attached to the sides. Mounted in my last crystal vase, it makes a delicate and lovely arrangement.
I have really enjoyed sharing these flowers with you. The mad holiday rush will be over soon, and I have some exciting plans for the site coming up, so I do hope you’ll come back soon!
