Flower jewelry has shown up on the runways during several fashion shows for the Spring and Summer 2010 collections.
These two lovely pieces are from the latest shows for Paris Fashion Week – they’re quite different, but both share some similarly shaped flowers:
Metallic gold rose choker from Veronique Leroy.
A seriously chunky rose & chain necklace from Chapurin.
If you’d like try your hand at make your own flower jewelry, I’ve got a few links to get you started.
The first one is one of my own tutorials – I think this may be the world’s easiest way to make roses out of ribbon. I’ve made hundreds of these over the years, beginning when I was a child. The roses look great on their own, or use different widths of ribbon to create a unique look.
If you’d prefer a little more realistic rose, then check out this how-to from DuhBe. They use a technique of cutting fabric, shaping it with a candle and then gathering it to create lovely roses.
