Roses, Roses!!

I am teaching a short practical project at Stitch and Craft in London's Olympia next month.
Everyone loves these rolled roses, they are quick and easy to make and can be used to embellish so many things.

Here are a couple of necklaces to go in my Etsy shop using this technique.

This one is made with a felted wool rose which has been hand dyed along with the lace. I've stitched little seed beads to it to give it sparkle. There's a mermaids tear below the rose which was collected on the beach in Devon. It has been wired and has a cabuchon shaped stone on the front.
The rest of the lace has been embellished with Austrian crystals and beads along with tiny blue green shells from a vintage necklace. Around the edge are tiny silk roses which have been stitched with silk ribbon.

I have made the cord with overstitched silk chiffon Sari ribbon and added a clasp.

Here are three roses stitched on to lace then embellished with freshwater pearls and Austrian crystals.

Each bead has been individally stitched to the lace and, again, the cord is made from silk chiffon Sari ribbon which has been overstitched with silk thread and fastened with a clasp.

Little roses have been added stitched with Silk ribbon. Both necklaces are backed with dupion silk.

They'll be going in my Etsy shop tomorrow.

I'm of to cook my dinner, have a great evening!!

Hello Angela,
Your necklaces are so beautiful. I can't make up my mind which one I like the most! I wish I could take your class! ;)

Hi Angela
These are both so beautiful but I am favouring the simplicity of the aqua coloured one - so delicately made and finished off!
Have a lovely week!
Hugs to you,

Love these and I also like the fact they are backed with silk! So nice to have next to your skin.
