Christine de Beer Floral Lifestyle Design

Echeveria ring

Succulents are really trendy right now. Not just as potted plants but also in floral designs.
My [:2704:] is still the most popular design of all in my workbook.
All the way from floral accessory to fashion accessory- right on trend!

Ring made of copper wire and plant material

I used three of the fleshy grey green leaves from the rosette shaped Echeveria plant and three of the bright yellow and orange florets from its flower spike to make this ring.

Long lasting succulent ring

Two delicate beaded copper wire tendrils bring out the orange of the florets and the copper in the ring.

Echeveria ring

To make the ring I used copper aluminum wire.

Echeveria ring- a week later!

This is a surprisingly long lasting design. I left the ring on my desk to enjoy, for as long as it lasts (and last... and last...) and this is what it looks like 7days after the photographs above!

Every week I add a new design with related tutorials. Be sure to subscribe to receive an email notification with design inspiration.

This is my ongoing creative workbook to research and capture design projects and techniques. You will mostly find ideas for floral art but I will also include some other projects such as gift packaging, cards and even cake decorating with a few lifestyle projects arranged in between.

Everything you see in this workbook was designed, made and photographed by me, unless specific credit is given to another designer.
