Glam and curvy

Decadent Black Silk Orchid I have been lucky recently. My freind from Moscow visited us with her boyfriend and I finally had a chance to make some pictures of my flowers and hair accessories in particular on a real model! Despite the lack of time and a pretty crappy camera we are both pleased with the result. I will be sharing some of the selected pictures here, so keep your eyes peeled ☺   My beautiful friend Alevtina is wearing … Read More

NEW! Double organza wedding butterflies

Although lace butterflies (cream and coloured) have proven successful, today I wanted to introduce their cousins which are for some reason being a bit neglected. I am talking about double organza butterflies. In the picture you can see the option with a silver thread between the layers of organza. However I also have a copper thread version of this fabric. Here the butterflies are made in white as a wedding decor but organza being pure silk can of course be coloured in any … Read More

Mint and turquoise butterfly headband

It is time to present one of my last creations here which I am rather proud about. First, I like the colours, very summery brights and at the same time cooling mint and turquoise shades. Second,  virtually nobody is indifferent to butterflies! And we have 3 mounted onto this headband, all of them in different colours, textures and shapes. I have used lace, 3 kinds of silk fabrics (satin, pongee, organza), seed beads in a lovely mix of colours and, of … Read More

Bluebells

Another inspiration from one the Japanese flower making tutorials is this stem of fantasy bluebells. I made them in intense blue, but would like to recreate in white and soft pink later on. I think they will look very nice in a bridal or a flower girl’s head wreath when made in white (or even pink!). Here is the original piece I made: And how do you see these bluebells? Maybe as a little corsage? Or…? Please let me know … Read More

What’s new?

After having received 3 books on silk flower making by world famous Japanese masters in the post I was thinking with what to start. Well, I must admit, the lack of Japanese does not help when I try to understand sophisticated instructions having just a couple of photos at my disposal. So I decided to start from a stem of tiny little roses or even rosebuds. They seem to be OK to make, and besides i have been approached before by … Read More

Butterfly morning

Good morning to everyone! What type of morning is it for you? Well, for some it is a Butterfly type of a morning ☺ And our hand painted silk butterflies have been featured again, now in this turqouise treasury full of these fascinating creatures!Have a peek at my other butterflies here

LB Fascinator

Here is another headband, or rather a little fascinator to compliment an LBD, or in fact any cocktail dress. It might look gothic at first but beads and lace add a lot of femininity to it let alone fragile peacock feather antennae! ☺ Had to model myself this time as nobody else was available

Sweet peas

Today I would like you to meet probably the most iconic flower of  the English cottage garden: the sweet peas. They come in endless shades of  pink, red, violet, purple, in fact any shade between white and chocolate brown. Sweet peas corsage is made of 3 types fabric (100% pure silk) and mounted on a brooch base.
