Now, let's see how Silvina creates her floral accessories for a behind the scene experience in the art of wedding design:
"When designing clay flowers I am inspired by nature and the beautiful soul of each flower. This is why each piece is a unique amulet that you will wear and will bring you beauty, peace and serenity. The delicate and intricate details of the flowers can remind you of the beauty and simplicity of nature and make you feel more connected to it."
Flower wires of different thicknesses in white and green
Floral tape in different colours
Moulds and veiners for petals and leaves
Dusting powders to paint the flowers
Hypoallergenic steel chain, pearls and gemstones for the handmade necklace
Different types of tools such as paintbrushes, Sculpey satin glaze, ribbons, and metal bases for the cardholders
Made to Perfection
For her jewellery and decorative pieces Silvina uses drying clay: "For me the best brand is Hearty Clay, it is soft, it is light and flexible to create beautiful flowers." Another reason is the sustainable aspect of using air-drying clay as a material. It is a natural, non-toxic material that does not require mining or extraction from the earth, making it a more environmentally friendly option. After the flower is dry she handpaints it with powder colours to give it the shades it needs to look like a fresh flower. Clay flowers are durable over time and are not affected by the sun or humidity and are perfect for decorating a kitchen window, living room, bathroom, and bedroom, so you can always keep your favourite flower that accompanied you on your big day.
Clay flowers are a perfect choice for your wedding or event because they never wilt, they don't need water to look beautiful, and you can keep them as a keepsake of your big day, it doesn't matter if it's not a seasonal flower because she can design it for you.
With clay flowers, you can have a beautiful corsage necklace for your bridesmaids, a single flower bouquet which is a trend in 2023 and is here to stay, floral place card holders for your guests, floral card holders for the menu and guest list, cake topper, as you can use a clay flower bouquet as decoration on your cake and much more...
