winter landscape

My recent posts seem to be more about horticulture than jewelry. I have been busy planning new work but I am also thinking about my Philadelphia Flower Show entry in the dried plant jewelry category. The show theme is "Springtime in Paris" and my task is to make a "necklace for the queen".
passiflora tendrils
red twig dogwood


Made with sea oats, iris leaves, acorns, orange peel, lombardy poplar branch, dried peas.
A set of bracelets. My entry 2010. 


  1. Oh wow, these bracelets are fascinating. How did you form the? Are they coated or did you use the materials as templates?


  2. They are constructed entirely from dried plants. Glued in places then painted. Takes longer than real jewelry!!
