Pressed flowers June 28 2019

 

I've always loved flowers (who doesn't?!), But being able to grow them in my own garden has brought me a new kind of happiness! I've been having fun putting flowers in a press. You put the fresh flowers in, wait a couple of weeks, and then it's like opening a present when they're ready! I recently learned though, that flowers can be pressed with an iron (which appeals to my impatient side), and they actually keep their colour better. It works beautifully! Now I'm experimenting with preserving them in jewellery. Here are some of my more successful tries. I'll have some available soon for purchase!
