Flowers everywhere. You'd think I'd be content with the ones in my yard, but no, always need more.
These two flowers are some of the variety that I carry in my new shop, StudioMarcy'sWhimsy, on Etsy.
I decided to sell them as handmade supplies, in hopes that artists and crafters might find them there.
You see, I think there are all kinds of places that they can be used.
Made on a medium gauge copper wire, they can be wire wrapped into a loop, so they'd work like large buttons. I can just picture them as an awesome closure on a cool handbag.
Or jewelry makers could make them into focals or incorporate them easily into wired pieces. I think pins, broaches or even handmade rings, (that's how I use them).
And of course, wouldn't they be great for brides or a bridal party? No one has asked me for custom orders on them yet, but they could decorate a cake, be incorporated into bridal headpieces, bouquets, or boutonnieres. (had to look that one up in the dictionary- my years of French classes didn't help at this hour in the morning).
I know this is a creative group of readers, so I'm opening up the comment hotline for your ideas. How would you use flowers like these?
