This past week I was inspired to create a ganutell rose, and here it is! I’ve used three pearl stamens in the center, basic petals surround the pearls, and T-petals for the balance of the flower. The thread is prepared with 32 gauge wire and my favorite pearlescent rayon floss in white.
Here’s a photo of the rose mounted in a crystal candle holder. This is my go-to mounting technique, and I used a really nice holder in deference to the elegance of the rose. Crushed seashells fill in around the stem (again, my favorite).
I hope you like it. Happy Springtime, everyone!
