With most of the nation facing severe cold weather this season, the southeastern US is no exception. We’ve had to endure ice and snow and cold temperatures that are very unusual indeed. What better way to shake off the winter blues than creating a few flowers.
I decided on two flowers using an off-white floss spun with silver and embellished with silver wire and beads, and added a light blue flower with some silver accents. I thought it made a nice winter bouquet. Here’s a photo of the finished piece.
I know I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating. Ganutell flowers offer unlimited opportunities to be creative and expressive. This is just one more example.
I’ve had lots of requests for some basic instruction in this art form, as well as the bead and wire flowers, and I’m currently working on a new e-book. Be sure to register for my newsletter, as I’ll be emailing an announcement when it’s available. (Update:the e-book is complete and available! Check it out here.)
In the meantime, stay warm, and bead something pretty!
