Daisy chain


These are much smaller flowers just over two inches wide and I've made them to wear as a necklace.

I satin stitched them , by hand, on to a handmade cord.
They can be moved up and down the length of the cord so they can be worn overlapping, up close to the neck,

or more loosely arranged with a space between.
I actually made more than 5 but I like it with this arrangement.
Do you think these are worth obsessing about or shall I stick with brooches?
This isn't me by the way, its Constance Truelove my mannequin, named after the very delightful and much missed lady who gave her to me.

You should contact Anthropologie immediately. I think they would sell tons of these!!!

Gina said...

I love these! And I would certainly wear one.

Maria Dent said...

This is lovely. Effective on the polo-neck jumper.

What a wonderful idea for a necklace! Wow, I can imagine custom daisy chains, lariat ones, long length, even skinny scarves.

Is Constance going out on the town? I saw some Mannequins in Burtons window - perhaps she needs a boyfriend?

Beena said...

Gorgeous! Constance wears it well!

Definitely start obsessing. These are gorgeous, I like them the best of all your things you've shown recently :-)

Heather said...

I think they are lovely and worth carrying on with. Five is a perfect number and I think they will be very popular.

Daisie said...

I think you have hit on a fabulous idea my friend, well worth your obsession and time... these are going to be a hit! As for Constance, she looks stunning... my Esmeralda is jealous!

Kim Hambric said...

I love this! I imagine that I would be far from alone in loving it. I think more should be made.

Dolores said...

I like the way you can move them close together or spaced apart. Now, for some other colours...

Julie said...

They are really lovely and I'm sure would be successful. 5 works well.

Oh! definitely have a go! This should be a real winner!

Pam said...

Beautiful Jackie!! Love it. Can see them in all those wonderful colours you use with the brooches.

Magpie's Mumblings said...

I'd definitely love to wear one of these Jackie, so I think they're worth doing.

Jan said...

Absolutely you would do well to make more of these. In fact I saw something vaguely similar made with beads in an old Beadwork magazine a few days ago and was going to write to tell you about it and suggest that you consider giving necklaces a try. I guess my thoughts got to you through the Universe! Well done, I look forward to seeing more.
I just noticed that you have something like 219 followers. Wow, good thing we don't all write to you every day.

connie said...

You should make more of these. It is very nice and a great idea. You could even slide on of the flowers around to the back. I think they would be nice in a group of 3 also. Keep up the great work. :-)

Art4Sol said...

I think necklaces have endless of possibilities as well as belts or sashes....don't limit yourself! Hate for you to get in a rut. They're beautiful.

Chris said...

Dot said...

I think necklaces are a brilliant way of displaying your art. This necklace is stunning!

Jude said...

Love them... not for me though..my busoms are far too big to have something like that on them...
Honestly, they are lovely...........

sea-blue-sky & abstracts said...

The Daisy Chain is lovely and complements the brooch production - I think there's room for both! Best wishes. Lesley

hippopip said...

A brilliant idea and another string to your bow

Chriss said...

I have ben a bit of a blurker on your blog for some time and cannot not comment today. Your necklace is amazing and you have a prodigious talent. Do you do commissions on brooches I wonder? I am thinking rich purple and aqua......

SewCalGal said...

Beautiful.

Any chance you would consider writing a tutorial to show more insights on how you make your beautiful flowers? I'd really like to try to make some. They look lovely.
