flowery


 
i was looking at pictures of the latest batch of brooches and necklaces i made
and apart from lots of lace and ribbons,
the common theme is.... flower.... again....
perhaps the theme for this latest batch will be....  *dictionary of flowers*





apart from the velvet and fabric flowers i use all the time, i used some preserved flowers.
i bought this box of preserved flowers, which looks like hydrangea to me, in tokyo a year ago.
i haven't used them apart from making a tiny pendant.... 

i was reluctant to use them because they look so pretty and delicate...
didn't want to use them.... just want to keep them....  as i don't know whether i would be able to get any more of them...
plus i think most people will find accessories made with such delicate flowers not practical.

but this round, i decided to use as many as i want, and use in whatever way i want....
it's a waste not to use them.....  plus i just can't keep buying things and keeping them forever...  ^_^
i hope there will be someone as impractical as me....  willing to wear such delicate accessories.


while i was lying awake in bed last night, an idea came into my mind....
i shall put it into action now....
