Back in December I was lucky enough to get my hands on some lovely Metal Filigree flowers from The Bead & Button Company. Well I have had a bit of a play and I wanted to share with you some of the results.
When I was deciding what to make, it just happened that I had a pair of David’s old jeans to hand and the antique bronze colour just goes so well with blue denim don’t you think?
So a denim and metal flower necklace was born. I used a glue gun to put it together, and it is mounted on a denim and craft Vilene sandwich to neaten the back, give the necklace some shape and for something to attach the chain to.
I love raw, fraying edges so tore the denim and either rolled it into flower shapes or made denim flower backings for some of the metal flowers.
But some of the metal flowers I just left as they are, or added a bead as they don’t really need much else doing to them to look beautiful.
At the moment I’m wearing it as an asymmetric necklace but you can also wear it straight on. I think I prefer it to one side, but I just can’t make my mind up!
Thanks again to The Bead & Button Company for a chance to play with these lovely embellishments. I know that some of you guys got some too. How have you been getting on with them and what have you made? I would love to see!
If you haven’t already and you wanted to check them out then hop on over to The Bead & Button Company Metal Filigree Flower Embellishments page. They are a great price for a metal embellishment and you get loads to play with too.
