Pinched petals evolve

Lindly Haunani has watched her Niche Award-winning pinched petal design evolve and change as the idea spread around the globe. The latest incarnation is this brooch version from Jeanette Kandray. Here Lindly’s pinched petals meet Eva Ehmeier’s artichokes.

Lindly chronicles some of the earlier versions on her blog. The process for making her original necklace is outlined as a color study in the Color Inspirations book.

    I find it so enjoyable to see a technique as it evolves in the hands of the single artist who developed it, but it’s also interesting to see the technique transformed as it explored by other artists.
