My mom had the idea of having clusters of the pearls interspersed in a normal bouquet so it’s clusters of flowers and clusters of pearls

Very cute – and an awesome vintage look.  I’d love to see what it looks like when you’re all finished! 

 

You’ve inspired me to maybe put a little pearl “cluster” in a vase (as part of a 3 vase cluster on the picnic blanket).  🙂

That’s really pretty! One thing that might look neat would be to incorporate some white ostrich feathers, as if the feather were the petals/leaves of a flower and the clustered pearls were the blossom. It also might be pretty to make some clusters from champagne or blush colored pearls to give a little more color dimension to the bouquet. Cool idea though!

It looks great so far.  I plan to use this technique to add some pearls into my brooch bouquet. 🙂  Can’t wait to see the finished pictures!

@meginstl: Not yet. I need to try it sometime when my schedule dies down a bit.

@Knubbsy-Wubbsy: I’m hoping to do something like this, only with crystals. I’m going to do real touch white roses and clusters of glass beads.

Please do post finished bouquets! I’m so excited to see what this will look like!

I have this image as my inspiration, but the beads aren’t exactly the right kind and there are too many flowers in it. 🙂

Since I see a lot of ladies are using this technique, I will put the tips here.

Tools needed:

Drill (cordless works best)

Needle nose pliers

Wire cutters

Used drier sheets

I cut a whole spool of wire at a time to 26 inches each.

I cut the drier sheets into 4×4 squares

Put the bead in the middle of the wire and twist to hold in place.

Place the bead in the middle of the drier sheet

Open the drill all the way place the drier sheet with the bead in the drill.

Tight till it is secure but not too tight

Hold the loose ends of the wire with the needle nose pliers.

(I have the drill face up in my lap)

Squeeze the trigger slowly until the whole wire is uniformly twisted.

I did all of mine this way and I can crank 100s out a night once you get the rhythm.

Love this! I probably won’t use it for my bouquet, but I am now thinking about incorporating these into the guys’ bouts… We are doin peacock feather bouts and I was going to incorporate whiteberries into them, but I am using pearls throughout all the decor, so this would work way better… Thanks for sharing!
