I think this one is really pretty, definitely substantially different than the prior ones. It’s also bigger, at about 1″ across its face.
I’m pleased at the shaping and cupping of the petals; that turned out really well. This is a temporary mount on ivory Ultrasuede, instead of white, so the petals aren’t on tight and you can see loose thread and tails. I can easily reuse them this way. The flower center is a 5mm Swarovski flatback. It’s obscured by the 15 seeds looking at an angle like this, but gives some depth to the flower if looking straight on, a rich gold with some flash. I have the flatbacks in 6mm too.
