Flower Garland Fun

Just a quick post. I wanted to show this off, but it's almost bedtime...

The garland has been made with beautiful chartreuse green string crocheted into a lovely vine complete with leaves. It has then been embellished with moss green paper moire yarn and the leaves have been filled in. The garland is closed with a little wooden bead hidden amongst a leaf and a few tendrils.

The flowers are silk rods in three colours: emerald green, kingfisher blue, golden yellow. I've also used sage green cocoons cut in half and with scalloped edges, golden natural cocoons and wooden and coconut beads.

The garland can be worn as a long necklace, wrapped around your neck twice, and in your hair (or whatever else you can think of - a scarf maybe? or wound around a green or turquoise silk scarf?) - the possibilities are endless. :-)


  1. You know I love this, the flowers, the mossy effect - gorgeous!

  2. Wow, that's lovely, Sybille! So quirky and textural!

  3. Hi Sybille,
    I thought I left a comment last time, but must have got lost in the ether!
    This is so unusual, I love the textures, beautiful work as usual.
