Please note I am currently overseas and this site is still in development. Wyldflower jewellery will be for sale mid-April, when I return to Australia. In the meantime please contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like any information. The product pages are currently hidden but you can have a look at the gallery page.
Wyldflower is a unique jewellery collection featuring flowers made from pure wool felt. At the moment I am focusing on my favourite Australian wildflower, the Flannel Flower. I previously made jewellery featuring the real flowers in resin but decided to stop working with that method as it was incredibly time consuming.
I now love working with felt. Each petal is cut freehand by myself. Having worked with Flannel Flowers for so many years I feel I know their essence and they seem to have a life of their own when I make them. Each piece of jewellery is a one-off in the sense that each flower is always different, just as they are in nature.
What look like petals on Flannel Flowers are actually leaves. In the centre of the leaves are hundreds of tiny flowers. I have honoured the centre of the flower with a beautiful Swarovski crystal. Unlike a flower such as a daisy, where the leaves are the same size and there is usually the same number of petals, Flannel Flowers have varying numbers of leaves and they can be quite different in shape and size. This is one of the things I love about them. The felt is a lovely representation of the soft furry leaves of the Flannel Flower.
