Jade Scott Flower Challenge

Earlier this month, Lorelei and Jade teamed up to have a challenge with Jade's super cute enamel flowers. It was okay that I didn't score one of the ones Lorelei was giving away because I kinda had a surplus of them from one of Jade's Etsy updates. The reason I bought up so many was because I was hoping to get a nice variety, color wise, for the necklace I had in mind. I had envisioned using several of them for a statement piece - a garland for the neck.
It took me a bit to think up of how I was going to do this. I finally came up with a plan. I had purchased these metal components from Rings & Things (more plans for them to come too). I punched 2 holes in the center of the solid ones so that I could thread the headpin down and then back up to wrap the rest of it around the base of the flower.

Then I punched a hole on each end and embellished each one with a rivet to connect all 5 of the scallops together. Simple chain is all that is needed to finish this collar up!

It is awesome to see a piece made with several of the enameled flowers! I love the colors, and it is a great statement piece. I used the same technique for attaching one flower headpin to my ring blank which had 2 holes. Great job-I love it!!

Oh my gosh! I love it! I admire your ability to work with metal... I have a bit of an issue with metal myself, so I stick to wire! I love the colors and what a gorgeous way to showcase each flower!

I missed you earlier, but I will update my blog to include your link! :-) Kris
