Fine silver flower from metal clay

Assemble painted leaves for a beautifully detailed pendant

The sensual flower paintings of Georgia O’Keeffe and Judy Chicago’s feminist installation, The Dinner Party, have always inspired me. The importance of their work and women’s art runs through my veins, and so I was excited to see, midway through my Flower Series, that I was following in the footsteps of these incredible artists, creating beautiful, sensual flowers that could actually be worn.
