Handmade Monday: More flowers and weaving

My obsession with all things floral seems to be continuing, and at least today the sun is shining, so maybe it's working as a charm to create some good weather? Hope everyone gets some respite from the rain this week.

I find making rings challenging so I was pleased with this little one.  The rose motif is becoming a bit of a signature, and it won't be long now until I see my roses necklace which has been professionally photographed for the September edition of Bead Trends magazine.  Really looking forward to that.

This lapis bracelet has mobius flower chain maille links in between.

This woven flower turned out a bit bigger than I envisaged.  Now I'm not sure whether to make it the centrepiece of a necklace, turn it into a brooch or wire it onto a hair comb, or something else.  What do you think?

Just noticed everything is blue and brown this week  One of my favourite colour combinations, think it's because it reminds me of my chocolate Labrador in his blue collar.

Had to order more wire to finish off a project, and hoping to do a tutorial next week.  The non-jewellery makers will probably be saying 'What on earth is that?' - all will be revealed.

Here's a link to see what other lovely crafty folk have been making this week.

Handmade Monday: Flowers everywhere

Bronzite flower bracelet

On holiday and suddenly seem to have become obsessed with making flowers - don't know why!  These are experimental pieces really, one offs for me to practice my wirework, so enjoying making them even though I  can see their flaws!
