Petal by petal

  • • Beatriz handcrafts silk flowers for weddings and fashion
  • • She creates headdresses, brooches or other accessories
  • • Her meticulous work requires a lot of patience

Beatriz Natmar has worked since 2009 in her private atelier in Barcelona making silk flowers of all types, sizes and colours for weddings and fashion. Her pieces not only reflect the beauty of blossoms in nature and the trends of the moment, but also the same delicacy and serenity that she transmits in actual life. Beatriz works with burins combining silks, organza, feathers or tulles, among other top-quality fabrics. Her flowers can be part of an exclusive headdress, a fashionable crown, a unique button holder, an exuberant brooch, or any other accessory. She has worked with high fashion designers such as Teresa Helbig. Lovers of her craft can purchase her “ready-to-wear” creations on her online store, or make a request for a custom made piece.

Essence

The base of the sculpture, which depicts half of a mask transforming into flowering branches, was handcrafted in papier mache and metal wire. The whole piece was then covered in recycled leather, tightened with isinglass and worked with iron tools. The back of each flowers was painted with gold pigments to bring luminosity. Beatriz added handpainted pistils from an antique market to complement the ensemble.

White Rose

This white silk rose looks almost like porcelain. While the petals were individually cut and assembled from raw silk, Beatriz used Shantung silk for the leaves.

Peony

Crafted from white silk, intensifying in pink shades towards the centre, the flower is Beatriz’s first peony. Each petal was hand painted individually with watercolours. In the centre, finely detailed yellow pistils bring naturalism to the decorative piece.

The Beginning

This porcelain piece is the result of multiple experimentations to recreate the centre of the Protea flower. It was fully hand shaped and painted in gradient shades of light pink and soft green with acrylics.

Protea

The Protea flower, composed of delicate petals and leaves made of recycled silk, features a finely detailed, hand shaped porcelain hearth. Each petal and leaf was individually hand painted for more realism. The flower was modelled from photos only as Beatriz did not have access to a physical one during lockdown.
