This is a pretty and attractive interpretation of flowers and leaves. Such a lot of work has gone into making this piece. The petals have be nipped and shaped by hand from a purple saucer to create their wonderful form. The leaves have been cut a shaped from the rim of another saucer. I have used stainless steel ball chain for the stem and the boarder of the heart and the little staemens I have used mini silver ball chain (used in jewellery making) and I have also included some blue coloured sparkle to give extra depth and interest.
I love this piece because it also shows the history of the china used. Every china cup and saucer I use has had a previous life and you will see tiny bits of it's wear and tear on the petals and leaves. Nothing too intrusive but just enough for people to take a closer look and discover more about the history of what this was before.
The heart mesasures approx 20cm across and 18cm down. It has a plate hanging hook to the reverse to allow it to be hung on a wall.
This would look great in a bedroom, hallway, landing, downstairs loo or any little nook or corner that needs brightening up.
