We keep getting more snow but it is springtime in the studio.
I received a gift in this vibrant floral tissue paper and couldnâ€™t resist making some cheerful pendants with them.
A simple oval was the obvious choice, but then it was fun playing with petal shapes too.
I pulled out Brenda Schwederâ€™s Now Thatâ€™s A Jig to practice more form-making.
When the wire shapes are completed I cut out the papers to match each form.
After dipping the paper in wax each petal is painstakingly aligned with the wire, and fused to its rightful place with a quilting iron.
A yellow scrap made me want to add another flower to my blend.
I shall call it Potentilla erecta. Buttercups might have to be next!
Iâ€™ve been loading more pendants and earrings to Etsy the past week.
These newbies will be processed for new listings soon, but you can always contact me to call dibs! I post combos and works in progress on my Instagram feed as well.
For the floral pendants, earrings and collar necklaces already uploaded, view my Etsy shop.
Motherâ€™s Day Pendants are in the works, too.
May 10 will be here before you know it, so contact me now for your custom order.
