Creating with Friends

From my first email conversation with Molly from For the West and Wild I knew she was something special. Together we planned a simple styled shoot to showcase what we both love about Wyoming and the soft light of winter. Inspired by her turquoise collection and a vintage Pendleton jacket that belong to my grandmother we pulled together two looks for the ladies from CM Modeling to wear.

I choose two coordinating color palettes - the first full of soft, buttery yellows and lots of textural elements like artichokes, ferns, the softest ranunculus and James Storie Orchids.

The second was loaded with rich tones in red and burgundy with blackberries, chrysanthemums and spray roses.

The new corsage

Confession - for years I dreaded making corsages. So much tape, so much ribbon, so uncomfortable to wear and difficult to make. I often put this task off to the very end of my design time and then rushed through it with a sick feeling in my heart. I wasn't excited or proud of what I created, a place no one wants to be.

And then I saw something new. A technique that let the flowers shine. A piece that was classy and comfortable and so cool that I couldn't want to learn. This little beauty from PassionFlower Events started it all for me.

This little beauty starts with a plain brass cuff that I source from another creative in Missouri. Perfect little blooms, interesting textures and bits of greenery are then attached. These cuffs are as durable and as they are beautiful. They can be called a corsage, flower cuff, wearable or flower jewelry. I call them my favorite.

Starting in 2018 I'm exclusively offering these brass corsage cuffs for weddings. The options are endless and I can't wait to make one for you.
