My love for flowers was imbedded in my brain when I was young. My father who was handicapped had a rose garden, and he loved all his roses. He would get out to his garden in his wheelchair, and pull weeds, cuss, then pull some more and cuss especially when he pricked his fingers with the thorns of his roses. I have tried in the many years of making these flowers, to make them look as real as possible. Well minus the thorns of course.
Purple tea roses are so small and dainty. Note the daisies along side the flowers…Really makes them pop!
These floribunda roses, were large, and heavy, as each were made from many glass seed beads, that combined with the wire, has some weight to them.
