One More Crocheted Fantasy Flower for the Bride

In two previous posts I featured what I've dubbed bridal "fantasy flowers".  These are flowers that can be worn as a hair ornament, worked into a brooch or sash, or otherwise use as a bridal accessory.  Over the past few days, I've created one additional fantasy flower that will be worked into a hair comb.  This one features gold wire, iridescent pearl metallic thread, tiny transparent ivory seed beads, iridescent crystal bugle beads, and faceted crystal beads in clear and champagne tones. I photographed it with two different backgrounds and in two naturally lit locations to try to give a good view of the finished flower.

Here are some close-ups to give a better view of the details:

For the finished comb, I plan to add a simple leaf crocheted in metallic gold thread and a couple of small "budding" stems.

Last week, I posted photos of the necklace I made for myself to match the dress I wore to my daughter, Betsy's, bridal shower.  I promised a photo of the earrings.  Here is a picture of me wearing both the necklace and earrings.

I still have a couple of items to make for Betsy's wedding -- the floral comb for her hair and one more flower hair clip for the flower girl.  But I have new ideas for designs for a necklace and a bracelet that I really want to try out next week.  We'll see how it goes ...
