Flora ~ Goddess of Flowers
FLORA is a Roman goddess of flowers and of the season of spring – a symbol for nature and flowers. The Romans honored her in order to ensure her continued blessing on their lands. Flora rules flowering plants and fruits as well as blossoming of plants and fruits. She protects the vegetation from diseases and rotting. Her powers are the reason why flowers grow and blossom.
How she was made:
Flora has been constructed entirely by using only wire and vegan feathers. The wire was manipulated into an open sphere like shape and connected to the handmade headband. The whole wire frame was tightly wrapped with tulle so the vegan feathers could be sewn onto it.
Each feather was made by hand using sinamay straw. After cutting the shapes and fraying the edges, they were manipulated further with heat to represent straw feathers. A sinamay sphere sits in the centre of this piece and each feather was carefully placed around the sphere to create a flower.
Flora is a unique piece of art that will make any outfit bloom
