Flora


Flora
Originally uploaded by Pips Jewellery Creation
I think that Spring must have gone to my head this year. I have not created so many flowers since I used to make Wedding Cakes and made them in Sugar Paste!

This bracelet has over 60 little flowers and Ivy Leaves and each one has been individually wire wrapped onto the bracelet links. It took ages, but I am so happy with it, and it sits beautifully!

This is the reason I love Polymer Clay so much. It does not matter what idea/inspiration/brainwave I get in my head, I do not need to source beads, or try and find the correct sizes, or try and match colours. I do not need to spend hours trying to find what I need (I can spend that time making it instead). I do not need to worry that I will not find what I have imagined. I know that my imagination can be made a reality. I can do it all with the clay.

What a wonderful medium!

Better than spring cleaning, better than a fancy air freshener.

so cool, you should have made a PMC toggle and clasp, like a leaf shaped one! oohh think I might try and make a toggle and clasp this weekend.

The bracelet is beautiful, you have some patience making all those flowers and wire wrapping. x
