Ganutell Exotic Flower Brooch Kit - Orange

  • Description

Everything you need to make a pretty brooch using ganutell techniques.

Ganutell is the name for small flowers created using a coiled wire. The word is derived from cannetille (French), cannotiglio (Italian), canotilla (Spanish) which means coiled wire. In English, we call this wire perl, because it resembles a string of beads when tight. 

This type of flower has been made in Europe since at least the 15th century - they were widely used to decorate churches and shrines. Variations are still used in modern passementerie to create trimmings, and traditional church decorations are still made in Malta. Victorian hair work often incorporated small flowers using the same techniques as the earlier silk decorations. 

  • Make a stunning brooch using traditional techniques
  • A bright and open flower with golden accents and bullion leaf stems - great for sunny summer days!
