Getting things done.....

Sorry Ive not blogged lately but have been tied up with getting projects finished.
Sometimes I'm making things for commissions,sometimes for shops and sometimes I'm making a bouquet for my mother who's getting married again.She wanted pearls and green leaves.I really liked the idea,Ive been working a little on it each day.

And these are for the bridesmaids.....

I love pearls and love how they are cold,and come from a sea creature.
The formation of a natural pearl begins when a foreign substance slips into the oyster between the mantle and the shell, which irritate­s the mantle. It's kind of like the oyster getting a splinter. The oyster's natural reaction is to cover up that irritant to protect itself. The man­tle covers the irritant with layers of the same nacre substance that is used to create the shell. This eventually forms a pearl. 

I remember reading a book years ago and in the story it said that pearls were mermaids tears.
I always remember that ..............funny what stays with you.


  1. What a beautiful analogy, and a beautiful bouquet. Nice work

  2. I too love pearls. But I was surprised to read you say they are cold because I love the feeling of warmth I get from them after wearing them for some time. They retain the body head and are wonderful to hold at the end of the night. :)

    This is a beautiful bouquet. Congrats to your mum.

  3. Victoria,I meant cold when you put them on first,that intitial coolness.
    My mum had some pearls growing up and I always liked to hold them.
    Best wishes,
