Wow. This is the strangest feeling. This Sunflower piece and I have been best friends for 5 weeks now (4 weeks if you subtract the time it took me to make the frame I decided not to use...). It feels weird to be done. Part of me will miss working on it, but the rest of me is just excited to move onto the next project. :)
Here are the pictures of my French Beaded Sunflower Wall Bouquet!! Hope you guys like it. It measures 20 inches tall by approx 12 inches wide.
I also did complete the custom Gerbera Daisy brooch I mentioned last week. Made in silver-lined crystal and Sangria. This pic was taken just before putting the backing on, just in case my customer needed any changes made.
Hmmm... what to make next... I do want to do a standing Sunflower sculpture and I already have some of the petals for it. I'm also wanting to do a sculpture of Asiatic Lilies, or some Hibiscus. But, I'm going on vacation starting this coming Sunday... so maybe I should just make a few small things. Like a hair piece or two and a few necklaces? Or something... I'll figure it out. :)
I will be doing a free tutorial for those fern leaves, so watch for that in the next few weeks.
