Very cool, love these!
Can also see these flowers translating into jewelry, minus the lighting.

I tend toward the more traditional, but certainly can appreciate the talent and imagination in her work. Those blue flower lights would illuminate your ramada beautifully!

Gorgeous! I love the fact that the material is recycled. That last photo is really beautiful. It reminds me of these glass flowers on wire stems you used to get in the 70s.
