I have decided on the centrepiece also so I have begun building the bouquet around it with ALOT of floral tape. I am so glad I made separate, short pearl stems because I'm finding that I need 1's, 2's and 3's to fill in gaps. I want a pearl seperation between all the pieces I've collected as you'll see in the pictures.
I have run out of bare (silver) wire, my pre-made short pearl stems and the floral tape is running low so after re-stocking on Wednesday I plan to get back to making more stems and arranging.
|This is my sisters bouquet started, thank you to http://myworld.ebay.co.uk/izzadee for donating these they're absolutely beautiful :-)|
Just need to get more silver wire to do the rest of the buttons
|Two individual pearl stems twisted onto a longer wire|
|The Stanley brooch shape was that awkward that I decided to attach some pearls to that stem,.|
|Put a button behind this one so you can't see the wire B-)|
|Stanley brooch is the centre, you're looking at the beginning of the top of what I hope to be a teardop shape. Will take daylight pictures when I've done more because the flash isn't the best when your photographing shiny things!|
Another update sooner, I hope! Thank you and please leave a comment if you read but do not follow so that I know I'm not talking to myself ;-)
