I'm very excited to be participating in a challenge based on the program, Project Runway! This week's challenge was taken from season 2 episode 9: Flower Power! The contestants were to create a dress using natural materials from the flower district. We are using their guidelines for jewelry.
I used leaves from my guava tree which are sturdy for the base of the cuff bracelet and blossoms from my neighbor's bougainvillea vine. A little hot glue to keep it all together. The bracelet is large and dramatic. I love the bright color of the flowers. The leaves and the flowers will actually dry nicely - the colors will not be quite so vibrant, but I think it will continue to be wearable.
This was a fun challenge and thank you to Alisa Miller for letting me join in. Please check out her blog for more information on the challenge!
