Metal Filigree Flower Embellishments From The Bead & Button Company – Part 2

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.

Thanks for popping in.

Metal Filigree Flower Embellishments From The Bead & Button Company

Christmas has come early! Look what arrived in my postbox this week…

They are metal filigree flower embellishments and come from the Bead & Button Company, aren’t they pretty? They are an antique bronze colour and come in a pack of 60, so plenty to play with or to split up and give to crafty friends or share in a crafty group.

You get six designs and 10 of each design, the largest is about 5.7 x 5.9 cm and the smallest is about 4 cm x 4 cm and they are bendable so you can move the petals or curve the layers slightly.

I’m really looking forward to using these in a project, so watch this space in the New Year and I will let you know how I get on with them. 

In the meantime, if you want to check them out, maybe get yourself a little crafty Christmas treat, you can find them on the Bead & Button Company website. They retail for £14.99 for the pack of 60, which works out at around 25p / flower, which is a great price for metal embellishments.

I also spotted a 10% off offer with a code on the website too, as well as lots of buttons that I need to add to my ever growing button collection – oh dear!

Have a fun flower embellishment Thursday! Oh and do tell if you have used these, I would love to hear about it and see your projects.
