Inspirations: Roses in jewellery

The remains of King Richard III are going to be reburied this week which has lead to some very impressive royal bling being displayed on the coffin – as pictured here from The Telegraph.

The white rose of York and the five petal Tudor rose are the key motifs, so this week our attention has turned to roses in jewellery making. Our choices aren’t perhaps quite as dramatic as items from the royal vaults but they do show how rose motifs can be used in a range of jewellery making.

There are very pretty rose beads and charms available. Keeping with the white rose theme, we loved how Lofficina has combined delicate porcelain flowers with leather in this necklace.

This embraceling bracelet by Crazy Art Grrl Jewelry features polymer clay roses. Polymer clay lends itself very well to flower jewellery and you can find a video tutorial on making roses here.

Leather offers another great way to create roses such as in this necklace by Leather Blossoms

Petals don’t need to be soft. Wire is a great way to create rose shapes as in this charm from Fler.cz. You can find a tutorial on wrapping wire into rose shapes here
