Prehistoric art often depicted animals, but drawings of plants were not common. Later, plant art appeared in the art of Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia. This interest in plant art might have been associated with the beginning of agriculture. The ancient Greeks and Romans decorated coins and ceramics with pictures of flowers and other plants.
Rose hand crafted the lampwork glass blue flower pictured above on the left for the Beadshaper collection.
Rose handcrafted the silver pendant on the right for the Metal Jewelry collection. The agate stone mounted on the pendant naturally formed a flower-like arrangement of petals.
Rose will be teaching classes in various exciting aspects of jewelry making at the Bead and Boutique Arts Show, February 28 to March 2 at the Concord Hilton Hotel in Concord, California. See Classes List for details.
