Sunflower Collar Necklace

I've always loved sunflowers. We used to grow many kinds in our garden and their sunny faces never fail to make me smile. I thought it would be fun to create a sunflower collar-type necklace that would make the wearer's face into the sunflower's "face".
The petals were made from PREMO poly clay using a mold for the veining I made from real flower petals. The cured petals were antiqued with acrylic paint to accent the veins and were attached to a base of hand-sewn macramé cord. The seeds were made from a PC cane. The ladybugs are made from PC and acrylic paint.

  2. I love this, it cries out - summer!
    I am sure it will bring joy to both the wearer and everyone who sees it.

    I updated my blog with the pictures of the Zuleykha cane by the way if you wanted to see how it turned out.
