By viewing what is approximately in each flower I buy and pick apart,
I can determine roughly how many flowers it took to produce my work.
Approx. the amount of ‘styles’ & seeds in one Protea flower. This is packed 2X more dense than i need, but it still isn’t a lot for what I need!
Two flowers produced the two small groups on left. Many to create the square on right.
Approx. the amount of ‘perianths’ contained in one Protea flower. Held up to current length of chain.
