anemone, always a muse

Back in the day when I worked for a florist I'd be delighted to see some anemone in mixed bouquets. They broke up the monotony of roses and mums. 

They are such amazing little flowers with so many stamen. 

I always tried to think of how I would reconstruct one of these in silver. It would be a tedious exercise but the results would be delightful. 

Maybe I will start to think about this project once again, starting with the center first. It is the most magical part of the anemone in my eyes. It could be part of a series, the center, a few petal pieces {just as they would fall from a dying flower} then the flower in it's entirety with a stem and leaves. 

It's nice to dream. Now off to bed for me.
