Mix & Match: Desert Rose

 
 
 
Happy Friday all! Are you excited about the weekend? I certainly am and want to squeeze every single atom of this beautiful although at certain points, scorching hot weather we have right now, because believe it or not, the forecast says we'll have a sudden drop of temps up to the 15 C, which is drastically low.
 
I have wished for cooler weather but not as cool as that, mind you! Hopefully, we'll manage to score another day at the beach and have fun - I am still not ready to end the summer...
 
Enough of small talk. Before I sign off, here's my newest mix & match necklace. I am not a great fan of combining yellow (ocre) and red and not that I haven't done it before, but I came out of my pleasing eye and comfort zone for this one. I worked on it absent-mindedly and alas! I forgot to snap a picture of the individual flowers. It dawned on me after I had them all piled up and sewn together.
 
This is how I did it:
 
 
I used a crochet trim as foundation onto which I piled that luxurious ocre rose, stuffed a daisy on top of it and crowned it with that tiny red flower.
 
I sewed the wooden necklace around it and voila! For this one I left that ties as are - thought of adding another row of crochet, but shrugged the idea off!
 
 
Have a beautiful, fulfilling weekend and I'll see you on Monday!
