To create brooches we need these materials:
Rivoli Swarovski Crystal Ivory Cream 14 mm — 1 pc.
Beads Swarovski Crystal Creamrose Pearl 4 mm — 6 pc.
Beads Swarovski Crystal Iridescent Red Pearl 3 mm — 6 pc.
Beads Miyuki Delica  №11  DB 865.
Beads Miyuki №15 silver  RR4201.
Beads Miyuki №15  black № 401.
Basis for brooches.
Denim fabric is dense.
Gelatin 2 teaspoons.
Monofilament.
The thread for beads is blue.
Wire for beads.
The glue is transparent.
Scissors, needle.
Cardboard.
Knife.
Foam rubber and thick fabric.


It is necessary to impregnate the denim fabric with gelatin to impart elasticity and rigidity to the fabric.
Also, this will not allow the edges of the tissue cut to crumble. A glass of water at room temperature, pour 2 teaspoons of gelatin and let stand for 30-40 minutes.
Then heat on the fire until the gelatin is completely dissolved, it is not necessary to boil. Cut off the denim fabric into a gelatinous solution and soak it well. Then, without pressing the fabric, remove the excess gelatin and leave to dry. After drying we set to work.

 From the cardboard we cut out the blanks of the petals of our flower and 2 leaves.
The size of the larger petal is 4.7 cm x 4 cm, the smaller one is 3.7 cm x 3 cm, the leaf size is 6.5 cm x 4.5 cm and 5.5 cm x 4 cm.
From the denim we cut out 6 petals large and 6 small and one leaf each.
The heart of the flower will Rivoli Swarovski, braided with beads.

 For assembly of petals we use thread for beads of blue color. It is better to work in 2 threads. We begin to collect a flower from smaller petals.
We fix threads from a dark side of the basis of a petal, and having put slightly with an overlap bottom edges of a petal, we bring a needle to the front (light) party and again to a wrong side.
Further each following petal, we put also and we string, passing a needle from a face on a wrong side of the basis of petals.
 We put a wrong side of the last petal on a face of the first and we also pass a needle at the basis. Also we repeat this circle a needle with a thread once again for durability. We pull together a thread and evenly we straighten petals of our flower.

 Similarly we do with big petals, remembering that the face in them — dark.

 Now for fixing of provisions of petals we stick from a wrong side of the basis of florets with a circle from a jeans with a diameter about 1 cm.

 We start assembly of a flower. We paste our core from a rivola and stamens in the center of a smaller flower and we allow glue to dry up. Then the smaller flower with a core is pasted in the center of a bigger flower.

 On preparations of leaves we do streaks, for giving to them of realness and naturalness of bends. I did it by the stupid party of an edge of a heated knife, having put leaves on the foam rubber laid by fabric.

 We impose a smaller leaf over bigger and we stick together as on a photo. And then we glue leaves to a wrong side of our flower.

 It was necessary to attach a basis for a brooch. We cut out preparation which will disguise a basis for a brooch from denim. We paste a basis to a flower wrong side, we allow to dry to glue. From above we paste preparation from a jeans.
