Funny what takes you back in time isn't it? This year I bought some plug plants on the internet - a lucky dip assortment for the patio pots. Such pretty things came up, including some wee michaelmas daisies. They remind me of my grandad, he always had them and they flowered until quite late in the year. My miniature version is still going strong out there on the patio, but it's far to wet this week to go out and sit. Instead I've been busy with the miniature painting brushes and seed beads, creating a pendant inspired by them.
I figured that I could incorporate a 'cabochon' made of silk and surround it with a bezel, to make something that had a vintage look to it, in keeping with a flower of cottage gardens..... and urban ones!
