Cherry blossom handmade for this saucer. Great contrast between the black and the pink. Central embroidery works pretty well. Part of Spring Summer 13.
Black straw saucer edged with black silk satin. Trimmed with small clusters of black silk satin roses. A client tried this on this week. She looked absolutely incredible.
Silk hydrangea in crepe morocain.
Spray roses in dusky pink silk satin. All hand cut, stiffened and wired onto a hair-coloured wire band.
Assembled on a base of navy blue silk satin. A bit of a showstopper! As each flower is handmade, this can be made in any combination of palettes.
A spray of rambling roses. Hand edged again, and each five petaled flower cut in one piece. Finished with hand embroidery in each centre.
Dark red cluster of roses - one open and two buds. Solid colour again.
Dyed and hand painted. A little blush on the edge of each petals make a huge difference - and adds to production time! Worth it though.
Hydrangea in silk habutai. Finer than the satin.
More silk roses - practise makes perfect... Block dye this time.
Rose with bud. Silk satin with hand-edged blushing on the petals.
Silk satin hydrangea. Eleven individual flowers with silk knot centres.
