Botanical Jewelry & Couture Workshop

Botanical materials have all the sparkle, movement, and gesture of gems and metals. Piece together the tiny and often overlooked bits of texture occurring in seed pods, tendrils, succulents, herbs, and tropical greenhouse favorites.  Learn to innovate in jewelry design using wire as a base for rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings and other wearables. Françoise's knowledge will be shared as you construct flexible armatures, and your creativity expanded, as you build intricate and cascading arrangements from foliage, bark, bundles of berries, succulents and flowers.

All flowers and supplies included.

Workshop location will be shared upon registration.
