Now that this has found its way to its new home, I can finally share the silk flower brooch I made in Candie Cooper's silk class at the Adornments Retreat last month.  The lovely kittykill helped me out by watching over the Craft a Craftster Friend Doll Swap while I was away at the retreat, and so I knew I wanted to make her something while I was there.  When we started in on these awesome flowers, I knew I had to make this for her!  Each petal was rough cut from silk fabric and lace, then the edges were lightly singed with a butane torch to seal them, and create an organic look.  They were layered together, topped with an awesome piece of Vintaj brass, and a cool rhinestone embellishment, and fished with some dangling bits of chain.  I couldn't resist adding some crystal beads to the chain.

What a sweet way to say thank you! It's beautiful. You did an excellent job, and it looks so delicate and dramatic. Cheesy

This is gorgeous! How much fun is that? I love it! Bet kitty does too, it's such terrific vibrant colours for her.

mistressjennie this is beautiful! this looks like something i may want to try. how did you attach the chain part? are they hooked to the clasp on the back? also, is everything glued down or attached some other way?
