Spring Flowers

Posted on

Spring is bursting forth, I think all this wonderful fresh energy has had an effect on my psyche and I have just finished making 14 flowers for brooches and hairclips.

A friend gave me a colour pallette to make a unique birthday present for her mum, so armed with silk hankies, coloured silks, and merino, I entered my world of felt alchemy.

The flowers are all wispy, floaty yet very sturdy, some have angelina fibre in them for a little bit of sparkle, fresh water pearls and glass beads.

The rest of the gang of 14, will go to a Balkan mountain event celebrating music, community and nature, and I can imagine women wandering the mountains with my flowers in their hair or on their clothes.
