A Collaboration

Hellebores
Designed by nature

Free machined petals:
Made by me

Precious jewelled stamens:
The result:
A beautiful corsage to dress up your outfit

And if you hurry you might just be able to get one of the remaining two brooches at either my Open Studio this coming weekend or at Emma's Open Studio the following weekend. Do email if you want details on how to find us... or check out http://www.camopenstudios.co.uk/ . We're getting together tomorrow to discuss more ideas for some collaborative efforts... what do you think? Should we make more?
