"A woman needs ropes and ropes of pearls."
I was so excited when Leandra approached me about working on this shoot with her. Pearls wouldn't be something I would normally pick as inspiration for me, but I was glad to try something new. Early spring was the perfect time to do this shoot. Mountain Fire (or Pieris Japonica) is just starting to flower and the tiny buds look just like a strand of pearls. It was a great jumping off point for my designs, and I love the way everything turned out, especially the bouquet! Enjoy!
