Molla Flowers

Molla is the technique of making flowers and jewellery with hollow coils (like springs). It is a technique you'll find in the various Ganutell instructions and patterns. Dalene Kelly's Teardrop and Crystal pattern is an example of a molla flower. The pictures are enlarged so you can see detail. Actual petals are 2-3 cm.

Molla Flower

In my search for interesting and unusual three dimensional floral jewelry and other pieces I discovered a beautiful vintage (estimated 1940) molla flower wreath in a shadow box frame. The wreath alone measures approximately 24 x 26 inches. Click the thumbnails to the right for closeups.
