I’m always pleased at the unlimited opportunities to be creative with each unique piece. Don’t you love the soft lavender of this small arrangement? The petals are square, with rhinestone centers and crystals at the outer edges. I used my painted paper leaves, then mounted the flower in a crystal candle holder with broken shells at the base.
The larger flower is made with kite petals for the inner layer, trimmed in gold wire, and basic petals for the outer layer.
The smaller flower has basic petals, made longer with the use of beads in the center and at the tips, and also outlined in gold wire. Both flowers and the bud use lots of those pretty gold beads.
I’ve enjoyed very positive response to these Ganutell flowers, and am hoping for a successful show.
