This never fails...when projects at work are at their most hectic, and I'm lucky to get 5 hours of sleep a nite...that always seems to be the same time I'm trying to build inventory for a show.
It's probably not the best time to be working on pieces that require multiple trips to the oven, or metal punching, hammering, dapping, etc. BUT...I am having so much fun with these flowers! Vintage buttons, textured metal, filigree, polishing brushes, plaster washers, mesh...the best part is mixing and matching these pieces to form the flower centers.
They are so much fun that I decided to make them a class for the Cyprus European Fiesta that is being planned for next spring. How cool is that?! The Mediterranean islands have been high on my wish list forever. I'm jazzed!
