Floral Accessories

With over 600 amazing photographs, 40 plus different design ideas with clear written text instructions ensuring perfect results, this innovative teaching book encourages easy progression through each project with confidence and ease. I have designed Floral Accessories – Creative Designs for everyone, from floral designers, florists, flower arrangers, competitors, hobbyists and anyone who has a love of flowers and I hope there is something for every event, taste and ability and you enjoy learning something new and making it your own.

During my long career as a floral designer, I have seen many changes over the years within our industry but the one thing that is forever constant is our love of knowledge and education and learning new techniques that we can make our own.

With so many attractive and decorative wires available worldwide, I wanted to explore the possibilities of taking a technique and transferring it from wearable art through to works of art for the bridal market, event work, competitive and prom. And that is exactly what I have been able to do in this new “How to” publication, Floral Accessories – Creative Designs.

Indian Floral Jewellery

With all my travelling adventures as an international designer, I wanted to draw upon this experience and include a touch of floral designs from a culture that constantly inspires me. With such vibrant colours and endless floral combinations, I have incorporated a western touch to create commercial designs that are relatively easy to achieve using various wire techniques found  within  Floral AccessoriesCreative Designs
