… of traditional flower maker in the bud.
When I was making the collection Résonance, I started making silk artificial flowers thanks to traditional flower making tools and molds (leaves and flowers). I have made two crowns adorned with dupioni silk roses (Crown of roses headbands Roses Ténébreuses and Beauté Fatale), a matching necklace and bracelet adorned with leather flowers (Necklace and Bracelet Etrange Jardin), a cuff bracelet adorned with a burgundy dupioni silk rose (Bracelet Rose Etoilée) and black silk satin roses for the Hat Fascinator Magie Noire.
But here is the trap… I completely get hooked by this stunning technique so that I really want to go further into it, to discover all its secrets. This haute couture technique which process is long and fiddly is much more than a creative technique but an intriguing, emotional, complex and artistic process above all in which your creativity can express.
I announce now that from today, I start my in-depth learning of artificial flower making art. I will start making roses and orchids which particularly attract me, painting their petals and leaves. I will try to make my own rose stamens. I even wish to make crowns and bunches when I will gain experience.
I will tell you about my progresses as I go along, my new achievements in this small diary entitled “Diary and adventures of traditional flower maker in the bud”.
It goes without saying that I will continue to propose my fabric designs in my online shop and maybe some more designs adorned with silk flowers.
While waiting for my silk painting supplies, I wanted to immerse again in this art by making headbands adorned with red, black, brown silk roses similar to one I made for me (private collection with black silk satin roses) for the shop with some other tools that I already have.
See you soon for my new floral adventures!
