Botanical Jewelry: Rings

Ever thought of offering flower jewelry as an alternative to corsages? Rings, earrings, necklaces and bracelets  made with flowers and texture are undoubtedly a fun change from the traditional pin-on corsages. It doesn’t take any more time to make a ring than to make a corsage and I bet that anyone will love this unexpected idea. The base is made with gauge 12 aluminum wire, so the size of the ring can easily be adjusted. Because I love detail so much  I like to use small blossoms, textures and succulents, just the same as when I make corsages ; but of course the sky is the limit!

Here are some examples of  flower rings.  In the next few days look for blog posts for examples of botanical necklaces, earrings and bracelets.

    I was thinking it might be amazing to make a flower ring for my upcoming wedding instead of buying an actual ring. Do you sell and ship them? Your work is mesmerizing. Ignites my creativity. Thank you for that.

    Hi Lara,
    Thank you for the message. Unfortunately I don’t ship.
