A New Phalaenopsis Necklace

Our Orchid Shows are gearing up and it's time to think about my Orchids again.

Phalaenopsis Necklace

I will be reproducing my Phaleaenopsis Orchid Necklace. The original one is way down towards the end of my posts but I'll bring up a copy just to show you what the original necklace looked like.

The new Phalaenopsis Orchid Necklace will be smaller, more flexable but twice the details the original one had. The design will be the same but it will have more buds, some half open buds, and a bit more smaller leaves.

The three flowers will be as perfect as I can get them, so I have chosen the Phal. H.P. Norton to reproduce. I feel this Phalaenopsis is among the most beautiful I have seen. While I am making the flowers, I will be offering a single Phalaenopsis Pendant with an Enhancer while sculpting the necklace.

Wax Model pictures so far...


I will be sculpting 2 more orchids above the first one plus a few more buds between the flowers. After that, I'll be designing the leaf links to the back and a clasp.

The New Vanda...


I took this flower from the front cover of Dr. Motes book...VANDAS. He wrote the book "Their Botany, History, and Culture.

In my sculpting opinion, he had the best Vanda to re-create because of it's character and I only hope I have captured the beauty.

These will be available in a few weeks, I will be posting the finished piece here before I list it on my website.

I will have 4 sizes available ranging in price from $32 (charm), Earrings $69, Med. Vanda Pendant $139.00 up to $189 (shown with enhancer).

I have also attached a link to Amazon where you could purchase the book. It's a wonderful book and I hope to see them again at the Redland Orchid Show in May to have my book autographed.

Oncidiums


Well it's time I sculpted a new Orchid...I've been to a few Orchid shows and this little guy stole my heart.

Psygmorchis pusilla is an ephemeral species often found growing in orange groves in Belize. The small fan-shaped plants usually last only a few years...another good reason to sculpt this beautiful Orchid.

I will use the roots as the bail and balance the fan shaped leaves, bud & flower asymmetrically.

I think it will (I hope it will) be a favorite among Orchid growers.

Bamboo & Phalaenopsis Orchid Pendant


New Bamboo & Phalaenopsis
Orchid Pendant

Every chance I get, I try to wear this necklace. It has an oriental feel to it that I just love. In one sitting I drew up three designs, this being one of them but so far, this is my
favorite.

I sculpted the pendant in wax, earrings at this time were not in my head so I started by making a bamboo frame and then it was a no brain-er...a small orchid fit perfectly inside.

I haven't finished the earrings but I think you can get a pretty good idea from the wax.

This is a new collection that I introduced earlier called the Orchid Spray, not sure if the name is sticking though, might have to work with that one a bit.

Here is the new pendant completed, this one is in Argentium Sterling Silver but we will be introducing the SS with 14KG Orchids & Buds.

For more information about this piece, I have added it to my Ruby Lane Store at: Bamboo & Orchid Pendant
