Hibiscus with a little bit of bling...

A client asked me to make hair flowers for her destination wedding in Spain. She had requested ivory hibiscus for herself and fuchsia and yellow hibiscus for her maid of honor. The ivory hibiscus she said to use my best judgment on how to embellish. I decided to accent the stamen with glass ivory seed beads hand wired to look like peps and dusted the fringe part of the stamen and the inner petals with a sheer gold acrylic paint. I think it gives is a simple yet stylish component to the flowers.
