Celebrating Amazing Flowers





SO I have decided to take the word and image of flowers and create things that reflect flowers. I have always been truly amazed at flowers... like how perfect are they.. the symetry is perfect, the colours are absolutely beautiful and then on top of it they smell - like roses are so perfect in smell - well i think. Maybe i am I am just a old sentimental! oh well.. I am just awestruck at flowers and when all is fruitless I just smell the roses and for that moment I am in heaven..anyway here are a couple of jewelry pieces created as a celebration of flowers.
