Firstly, thank you SO much to everyone for all your comments on Flowerona, Twitter and Facebook about my ‘Being different…’ blog post yesterday!
It was wonderful to hear all your thoughts and it means a lot to me that so many of you responded.
Well, she told me that she’s been working with Freya Rose and together they’ve recently brought out a small exclusive range of couture floral shoe clips.
They’re named Belle, Ariel and Aurora.
“The flowers are hand-crafted from clay, a type that becomes lighter and slightly soft when it dries.
It’s all done exclusively by hand. I don’t use cutters, stencils or other such tools. And I make my own colours too, so each little bud is totally unique.
For the gold flowers (below), I use real 23 ¾ carat gold leaf that is painstakingly applied by hand onto the flowers.
The gold leaf is incredibly fine and really easy to crush or dissolve even in the lightest breeze. So I literally have to hold my breath while applying it!
Because of the quality of the gold and the method I use, the delicate layer of gold gives the flowers a beautiful antique feel.“
I think all three shoe clip designs are absolutely stunning. Huge congratulations to both companies on such a wonderful collaboration!
