"Jewels" at the Philadelphia Flower Show

At the recent Philadelphia Flower Show, I expected to see an exhibit or two where designers were asked to interpret an item in flowers. And what I saw was pretty impressive!

I love how this designer cleverly interpreted Van Cleef and Arpel's wildly popular Alhambra design. Remember, this is composed of all natural materials!

The delicacy of this pin is astounding.

This lovely little clutch purse took the prize for first place-and rightly so!

This designer chose a whimsical path...
and it was especially in keeping with the Parisian theme of the show.

Do you recognize the 'wings'? They're the seed pods of Maple trees!

Have you seen the floral "jewelry" at Bloomers?
They're perfect for proms and weddings, and custom made just for you!

love all that jewelry!! Maybe next year I can talk hubby into going to the show. Stopped by last Sun. but of course you were closed. Wanted you to meet my granddaughter who has just started her own business. She's making dichroic jewelry and has it in two galleries in Mich. She does very nice work for an 11 year old. Will show you my piece. Rosemarie
