Flower Power

Flowers seem to be the next big thing in fashion and jewelry at the moment. I was flicking through July’s Marie Claire in in the space of three or four pages came across these examples. With my new found love for polymer clay, I thought I’d give it a whirl. Hey, if it’s good enough for Dior?

I kneaded out a rectangle shape for the flower centre and then rolled it up and then added roughly circular shapes to the outside as petals. It was easy as pie. My first ones were the large roses, it was a little more difficult to get the hang of the smaller ones at first. I then cut off any excess at the bottom to get a nice clean edge and made a hole through with a needle. After baking, I coated them in fimo varnish to give them a nice slightly gloss finish and to give added strength. The only regret I have it that you can still see my fingers prints in the petals! Oh well.

I don’t have a solid plan for them just yet (the story of my crafting life), but I attempted to make a copy of one of the rings shown in the adds above. I think it’s quite sweet. Shame about the Irish girls, translucent hand it’s on!
