Botanical materials have all the sparkle, movement, color and gesture of precious gems and metals.
Françoise's course takes you through the concepts, mechanics and artistry of creating fine botanical jewelry. Offered are lessons on crafting rings, earrings, bracelets and necklaces.
Learn to bring your haute couture imagination to life through the manipulation of wire and natural elements.
Françoise teaches you to piece together the tiny and often overlooked bits of texture occurring in seed pods, vine tendrils, succulents, herbs, flowers and leafy, tropical greenhouse favorites.
These adornments stun at galas, weddings and on the catwalk but, they are great fun to make for yourself too!
Whether you are a florist adding to your arsenal or a hobbies furthering your design ideas, Françoise will teach you to make gorgeous, one-of-a-kind, floral jewelry.
"Watching you at work rekindles my passion for flowers, every time! It really is an experience to watch you create and explore botanicals; the way you deconstruct carnations, hellebores, bleeding hearts and even poppies sparks the imagination of this 20+ year floristry veteran. Your curiosity is contagious, Françoise! Thanks for sharing your knowledge and unique perspective on botanical couture with the flower world!"

"I just finished watching your video tutorial and although I've seen you teach a few workshops in person, I felt like this 'up close view' of you at work was an even more intimate look at exactly 'what you do' and 'how you do it'. You share so many techniques and tools in just 1 hour. It's incredible." — , Alison Ellis, Floral Designer
