Nature will always be a continuing theme in the work I do. The symmetry, colors, and harmonious shapes and forms you see reoccurring in nature are the perfect artist’s pallet. This flower barrette is a blend of antique brass and Sculpey. Each delicate petal was formed individually. The periwinkle hues in the metallic pigment mirror the colors of the morning glories that used to grow like weeds on our fence in Elk Grove. This will be a difficult piece to part with.
