I wanted to create a series of jewellery pieces themed around Ontario wildflowers. It’s that time of year where even the scrubby stuff on the side of the highway is a riot of colour; goldenrod, chicory, loosestrife, new England astor and the unromantically named cow vetch.
One of the best places in the city to collect these lovelies is the Leslie Street Spit. Armed with our guide books on Ontario Wildflowers and Ontario Bird Watching, Tito and I spent a few happy hours wandering around collecting lovely things to resin. Here are some pics of the day – I’ve already created a lovely piece with blue chicory holding it’s colour perfectly, pics coming soon!
