It’s definitely winter. Snow is coming, apparently.
The bitingly cold weather gives me an urge to grab some willow twigs and make a winter wreath with pine cones and things. I’m also rather obsessed with making nature in miniature at the moment. As it is I have to scrub the kitchen floor and finish some silver fingerprint orders.
I did have time to make a little silver pine cone though. I grabbed three tiny willow twigs from the garden and made a miniature wreath (it’s about 7cm in diameter). It’s a start anyway.

I love the wreath, the little pinecone is so beautiful. I really like the nature in silver idea at the moment, silver leaves, flowers, acorns… all so pretty! 🙂 x

Love the little wreath and that pine cone is beautiufl.
Your little fir cone is so beautiful!
Beautiful Emma. I love the pinecone, perhaps you could make some little holly leaves? I love your silver work.
But ignore those weather people – metcheck say it isn't going to snow this far south and they're usually right. That's what I'm banking on, anyway.
We did have a dusting overnight but honestly, if you'd scraped it up from the whole village you'd only have had enough for a small snowball.
The little pine cone is gorgeous! I've got the machine set up to stitch some petals this afternoon but don't hold your breath!

Lovely pine cone Emma! Clever you.
It is very cold isn't it – I love the excuse to wear layer of rich coloured clothes and big boots.

We have a similar vein of creativity, my main love is nature and growing/selling my flowers, but it greatly informs my silversmithing, and your passion is your silver, but you take inspiration from nature! Nature and jewellery – we are so lucky to do what we do!! xx
Enchanting, Emma – as usual!
That is so beautiful and knowing your work I can imagine how intricate it is.
Enjoy the snow – not even a frost here yet, but it is blooming chilly!
Just beautiful! I love that it's so small, too.
Thank you for changing the comment box style!
Oh Emma, it's beautiful!
The snow doesn't seem to be coming our way. I don't know whether to be relieved or not.
I adore the simpleness and smallness of the pinecone. I love that you bring nature into your work
Scented Sweetpeas says
oohh that is a bit like the sparkly pine cones I have just added to my blog but a lot more expensive of course 🙂
By the way I e-mailed you the other day with another birdie order 🙂 x
That is just the sweetest thing ever. I love it, possibly even more than the cotton reel!
Magic Bean says
That is my bestest thing you've made after the hare which of course is my most fave. Ax

The pine cone is beautiful, so detailed.
Gorgeous. You are so talented.
Oh, oh, I want one! It's so perfect.
Oh, it's just gorgeous.

Oh how lovely – they're both gorgeous! I love the idea of a mini wreath and it's quite minimal too – looks great. The silver cone is beautiful 🙂
Thank you for popping by,
I love the miniature wreath and pinecone – so delicate.
Thanks for the button update!
Belinda Saville says
There is something so delightful about pine cones! Lovely work 🙂 And your miniature wreath is just adorable!
You just can't go wrong with pinecones. Or hellebores. Or seed heads, really.
Okay, everything you make is fab. Period.
