Glass Flower Garden - Sale in My StudioMarcy Etsy Shop
I've been busy making flowers. I guess with no real gardening skills this is about as close as I'm going to get. I've always loved flowers and when I first started melting glass, I was sure that I would be specializing in encased florals. I guessed wrong.
But recently, I've started playing around with whimsical sculptural flowers. And am now listing them in my Etsy shop StudioMarcy. AND...I'm having a flower sale for a few more days.
They are constructed so the hole runs below the petals and it's a 3/32 in most cases. They look great as pendants or on jewelry. In fact, I make a lot of necklaces with three blossoms on each.
If you see something here that isn't listed, please send me an email. I've been away and haven't been able to upload all of them, so they are hanging out on my bead rack...some with bees and ladybugs and some bug free, (but no chemicals were used to keep the bugs away).
And now I'm deciding whether to make realistic flowers as well, or whether to stay with my whimsical fantasy ones. What do you think?
