Heghnar Petrosyan, from Armenia, loves to collect wild flowers and use them artistically. The flowers she collects are thoroughly impressed on a number of personal adornments, such as rings, bracelets and necklaces.
To make lasting ornaments, Heghnar uses silver and non-precious metals. It takes three stages to craft a silver adornment. First she and a silversmith decide on the form, after which she works her magic. In the final stage, an expert then takes the piece and uses an artificial solution to veneer the piece. After the solution dries, it looks like glass. At first glance, it seems as if the flowers have been placed under a shard of glass. It doesn’t take long to prepare one piece, but the complete process is quite long.
