Botanical Baubles. Jewelry made from flowers, seeds and pods.

I recently attended the Philadelphia Flower Show and I just can't get the jewelry I saw there out of my mind. As you will see below it's pretty spectacular given that everything is made out of flowers, seeds, and pods. And a little paint. Talk about inspiration. So very eco-chic. My favorite is the dragonfly necklace.  Enjoy.
Blue bracelet with "seed" pearls.

Pearls made of macadamia nuts.

Nature inspired jewelry at its best.

Materials used for the Dragonfly. Incredible!

Nature's cameo.

Truly faux pearls and rhinestones. Vintage inspired.

Pretty in pink.

Pocket watch made from a large nut shell.

How she wore it: Vintage Rhinestone Daisy Comb

I just received this lovely photo and a note from another Love. Honor. Upcyle. bride named Libby of New South Wales, " This was the PERFECT accessory for my hair on my wedding day! I love it so much - thank you for all your assistance in getting it to me in time for the day - came just in time!"

The vintage rhinestone daisy comb.
This rhinestone comb suited her perfectly and she was a wonderful bride to work with. Her time-frame was tight and we were worlds apart (Philadelphia to New South Wales) but we pulled it off!

Sneak Peak: Garters

Sheer Elegance. Ivory Organza Garter with Vintage Pearls.
It just seems fitting that garters be added to the vintage lovelies offered by LoveHonorUpcycle.  I've been working on some designs since early January and I'm thrilled with the direction they are taking. Sophisticated, sexy and of course vintage adorned. Here is a sneak peak at one of several designs I'm launching this week. Ready to ship and Custom Designs available.
