The Flower Kits are finished up, and the pre-orders are all shipped out. I have just about a dozen left to offer, would you like one? The PDF is lovely, and shows the many ways that the basic pattern can be arranged and tailored in place, and the kit comes with a glorious selection of colours, enough for two great pieces. I’ve done a video to go with the kits; it shows how I arrange, fold, hold and tailor the pieces into all of these forms.
I am collecting LARGE brooches and flower focals for our runway show at the Mingei Museum in San Diego this August 15, and I hope you will whip one up and send it in! Each kit contains all of the basic colours from my series of flowers, with some variety in the extras (so we get a good variety of pieces). $140.
