This 36″ brass and bronze wirewrapped necklace was for myself. It has red rose beads, glass pearls , jet and fern green Swarovski Element Crystals, bronze leaves and dragonfly wings. I pieced bronze chain to space out the beads. I added a brass bow to the closure to finish it off. This necklace paired perfectly with my cream and white striped dress that is now my favorite.
I love roses, I always wanted a red rose ring, but never came across one, when I got into ring making that was the first thing that came to mind. These are the a few that I wear most often, and they are incredibly comfortable. These rings have become very popular with my loved ones, and I finally have my red rose ring I always wanted.
My mom told me the other day that there was a nest just outside my sisters window, When I visited for my sisters birthday I was so excited to see this, I took this photo still inside the house through the front window. its hard to tell but there are 5 of them. I really thought that the nest was beautiful there are still dried flowers attached to the stalks that are weaved in.
A few weeks earlier I had went to my sisters rose bush to clean it up a bit after all the blooms died and I found this little guy just staring at me,he wasn’t scared so I took this quick photo
He seems to live at the very bottom of the bus,h in the center of where the canes branch out, He will climb to the top of the rose bush look around then snuggle back into his thorny lair.
I am really pleased with this photo I took from my garden. Bachelors Buttons, also known as cornflower is the source of the color cornflower blue. This beautiful flower retains its color very well when dried and is even edible, tasting similar to a clove
This single white bloom popped up the other day. It may not be as lovely as my other poppies but I found the little brown specks on antique white petals charming. I am really fond of the center of poppies so intricate and beautiful.
