Living necklace of succulents!

Enjoying the night with talent Canberra Designer Nicolle Clout of Blossom Garden Design

 Last night was the awards night for AILDM, the Australian Institute of Landscape Designers & Managers.

It was the most incredible event, and a fantastic opportunity to talk to other industry professionals. I created this living necklace to wear for the event and thought it would be a bit of an icebreaker!
Made of chicken wire, succulents, felt, sphagnum moss, and wire, it was a complete success! I let it dry out for a few days thankfully so it wasn't too heavy or drippy, and it's only issue was getting squished due to too many hugs!

I want to thank my friends (especially Nicolle Clout featured with me in this photo) for all their support, and thank you to all the lovely new people I met at the event. It was such an inspirational night and I'm looking forward to pushing the boundaries even further somehow next year.
