This one’s an older piece. I share Jazzlet’s love for cornflowers. Not only are they one of the rare blue flowers, they are also very undemanding flowers. Just throw a handful of seeds and you have flowers for years to come. I really need to dry more flowers in summer so I can have fun in winter…
Again, huge problems in getting the camera to focus…
Jazzlet, if you want it, just send me your address.
And here’s some more UV resin fun. I’m still very much into making matching necklaces and earrings.
The shape is pretty irregular, but in this case I like it, as it matches the marble/pebble design.
And I made a necklace to match the cherry blossom earrings:
As you can see, I changed the way I made the petals. They are more regular this way and much easier to work. I’m not sure which ones I like better, I just know that I would have lost patience making all the petals the other way.

Beautiful work, Giliell!

The hair is gorgeous also, too!
:-D Beautiful cornflower! I love the way you have some of the cherry flowers on the chain and some hanging below the chain
Lovely work, Giliell. I’m especially fond of the flower necklace.

Co-incidentally, saw this article the other day explaining that rareity of blue flowers mystery :
Seems if we were bees we’d see alot more blue (& UV) flowers.
Interesting read I think.
Locally here with have as blue flowers, a number of Wahlenbergias (native bluebells), Brunonia australis (Blue Pincushion*) plus the tiny & very hard (for me anyhow!) to photo Lobelia gibbosa (False orchid, Angled Lobelia / Tall Lobelia*) as well as others including some of our Theymitra (Sun orchid) & Scaevola (Fanflower) species so we’re pretty lucky really..

Huh, blockquote fail sorry, first line is from the OP.
Also typo Thelymitra for our local sunorchids eg. http://anpsa.org.au/t-ixi.html
