Last week I mentioned that I had a potential custom order for some mini rose garlands. After speaking with the customer about some details I worked up a little sample piece, and I wanted to share the pictures of those.
This is just a small 7 inch segment. The vines are wanted to embellish a chandelier, but I don't have one of those to model it so I got out a little brass hoop instead.
If the order goes through, then I will be making vines like this one for several weeks. That will finish up July and probably part of August.
My brain has been wandering a little bit. I think it's a little tired of the constraints of having to design around a specific flower each month. June and July were supposed to be Rose Month, so it's fortunate that this mini rose vine came at this time. I have several projects that I've started, like some larger rose hair pins with baby's breath, a rose necklace, a rose hair comb, and rose shoe clips... but I haven't found the urge to finish them yet. I keep getting distracted by more and more ideas. Like these:
I have another idea for some earrings that I'd like to try out tonight while I await specifics for the rose vines. Then I think I will just not do a Flower of the Month for August. The month would be cut short anyways. So I'm just going to make whatever I want as it comes to me to give my brain a little break. This would also be a good time to remake some of my old designs to make some more patterns. I want to do my Iris and Gerbera patterns, so hopefully I will be able to get at least one of those done.
By the way, tomorrow is my birthday. I'm turning 25. :) CAAAAKE!!! IIIIIIICE CREEEAAAM!!! :D
