I recently posted about using wire in Ganutell flowers, rather than the traditional thread prepared with floss and fine wire. It’s been a while, but I’ve finally set a few of these wire flowers in an arrangement so I could share with you. Here’s the arrangement mounted in a black ceramic bud vase. These flowers are made using lots of gold crystals, with smaller crystals on the tips of the petals. One has ganutell wire for stamens, and for the other I’ve used more crystals for the center. The wired leaves are made using gold paper, brushed with gold, red and green paint for some dimension. Ganutell flowers are such fun – they can be made with lots of interesting beads and embellishments, and mounted in a variety of ways. I hope you like this one!
