Flowers, flowers... and more flowers!

Recently two jewellery designers:  Bobbi (from My Wired Imagination) and Diana (aka Lady Mockingbird) made some wonderful flower jewellery as variations of a couple of my flower tutorials.  Their beautiful creations inspired me to revisit my flower designs... 

Kyanite Sterling Silver Wire Flower Necklace

Amethyst Sterling Silver Hammered Flower Pendant

My daisy flower was inspired by Bobbi's flowers where she has fixed a Swarovski sew on bead in the centre of the flower. It got me thinking how I could do this with a coin bead. These are Bobbi's wonderful flowers linked together as a bracelet.  I love the sparkly centres and the clever way she has joined the flowers together.

And here is a beautiful copper flower pendant from Diana.  I love the way she has coiled the petals and the copper goes so perfectly with the green centre.

Thank you to both designers for sharing their flowers with me.  I urge you to take a look at their jewellery designs in their Etsy shops by clicking on these links:

  1. Oh, I LOVE your flowers. I just admire the simplicity and beauty of your designs so much. I have your tutorial from JewelryLessons.com for the flowers and now that its becoming spring and the Mother's Day business for my etsy shop is done, I can't wait to make myself something. My burnisher just arrived! :) I'm just torn between a necklace or earrings first...

    And I also love Bobbi's Knot-a-Ring. What a beautiful and interesting design for a ring!

    I don't think I've seen Diana's stuff before, but the Longing For Spring-Sterling Silver and Prehnite Scroll Necklace in her shop is gorgeous. I love seeing the way people take simple wire and turn it into such a cohesive beautiful shape!

    Great post! Thanks!

  2. Hi W-m-b! I hope you have fun with the tutorial. I'm always here to help if you have any questions about the tutorial. Thank you for buying it.

    The burnisher will be great at helping the petals of your flower curl up like natural petals but I would also recommend using sanding pads (foam backed sandpaper) to bring up the metal to a super smooth shiny finish (if that's a look that appeals to you).

    Bobbi and Diana are so talented, I'm glad you have had a chance to browse through their shops.

    Thanks for stopping by.

  3. My jaw just dropped. No one's ever included my work in a blog before now. Kristin you are so very generous. Thanks for including my photo of the Lotus pendant.

    Whimsy, thank you for taking the time to visit my shop and comment on one of my pieces there. Again I'm left practically speechless. Reading your compliment on my piece "longing for Spring" gave me a huge grin. Thank you!

  4. Hi Lady M - you're very welcome! Thank you for sharing your design with me.
