New silk poppy

New silk poppy

Undoubtedly fabric poppies have always been popular. Especially fire engine red ones, which resemble the simple wild poppies grown without any cultivation in a natural setting. As we all know the red remembrance poppy has become a familiar emblem of Remembrance Day due to the poem “In Flanders Fields”. To cater for all tastes I have several Remembrance poppies in my portfolio ranging from satin to velvet ones, with and without foliage, with just 4 petals or a fuller version with 14. Here is one of the most popular designs:

 But those of us who are into gardening surely know oriental poppies with their large blooms and fluffy leaves.
My newest poppy creation was inspired by these impressive oriental poppies.
 An amazingly full and at the same time light, almost transparent large poppy flower can be turned into an impressive headpiece to complete a wedding or romantic look, a corsage or a hat decoration.

I made it using finest silk fabrics that have been painted by hand. The flower can be created in other colours to match your outfit or colour scheme. For more information on the poppy flower please head to my Etsy shop

Lilac rose brooch

I must admit I like the idea of a beautiful silk flower accentuating a wedding dress sash. Painted by hand to match a wedding colour scheme it stands out against the white or cream froth of a bridal gown and yet complements the theme.

Hand made using a specialist technique the rose brooch is more durable than you might think yet delicate and beautiful, which makes it a great accessory even after your W-day. Wear it with a romantic outfit and it will always remind you of one really special day in your life.

Silk rose corsage for a bridal sash

The rose measures about 10 cm in diameter without foliage. The size of the brooch as well the the colour can be customised according to your preferences. To purchase the designer silk rose corsage before someone else snaps this desirable piece of wearable art please head to my Etsy store. There you can also place your custom order.
