Keeping Flowers Blooming Through the Cold Months
Outside in my Connecticut garden, the perennials are cut back, my hydrangeas wrapped in burlap and mulch is mounded around the tender plants--but I plan to keep the flowers blooming on my jewelry bench. Luscious briolettes in all colors lend themselves perfectly to my gemstone flower wire-wrapping technique. I've hung them from handmade earwires and plan to add them to lariat style necklaces this week. Enjoy.
