"Mary, Mary quite contrary how does your garden grow?

Silver bells, cockle shells and pretty maids all in a row."

Hearing this little snippet of a nursery rhyme always made me imagine walking over a lush green carpet of grass surrounded by lavish blooms of roses, daisies, hydrangeas, babies breath, geraniums, pansies and on and on.... I believe there was at least one of all flowers known to man within my little garden.  Flowers always hold such fascination for me and consistently influences my creative spirit.

Mother Nature's artistic talent in creating so many unique handmade blossoms is phenomenal.  No matter how many similar blooms peak out of their buds, all are as unique as the first one created.  The uniqueness of Mother Nature's creations is the inspiration I build on when creating my handmade flower brooches and pendants.  The method in creating the basic flower is relatively straight forward.  But, when I start shaping the individual petals is when the creative muse jumps into action.  One twist of the pliers suggests the next and so on.  Once the last petal is shaped, the creative spirit which had totally taken control of my emotions brought such satisfaction that my brain is utterly relaxed to the point exhaustion.  

We, as humans can only emulate Mother Nature's treasures.  Her creations are definitively the gift wrapping on our wondrous world
