THE LEONA CHARLIZE

I have been chomping at the bit to reveal this brand new project to you. It gives me great pleasure to introduce to you The Leona Charlize bouquet.

Comprised of hand cut petals of various gorgeous silk fabrics, faceted peridot gemstones, silver rhinestone clusters, vintage brooches and lace. Each flower is its own individual piece with a green dupioni silk wrapped stem. I created this one of a kind bouquet for the lovely Jo from Peacock Invitations, she is setting up a photo shoot to promote handmade in the wedding industry at a secret European/Mediterranean location.

I have been thinking about concepts for a bouquet made out of silk flowers a lot so when she asked me to create one I was thrilled to say the least. Each rhinestone cluster is pieced together and stitched to the flower by hand. I hope you enjoy the Leona Charlize as much as I do.

OMG Marie - my mouth just dropped open in awe when I saw the photos - you MUST create more to sell in your shop. What an absolutely gorgeous eco-friendly bouquet that can be kept for years. I cannot wait to see this photo shoot from Jo, what a great idea.

I love it! That is definitely the best non-living bouquet I have EVER seen, and that is saying a lot!

It's just stunning!

That is show-stoppingly fantastic!
Girl, you're on to something here - I challenge any live bouquet to look so good! (but then, you know my weakness for the sparkles...)
Love it!!
