Default Dogwood Blossoms-First Pass

I have a potential customer who wants dogwood blossoms incorporated in her railing. I forged these to give her an idea of the possibilities. I will take them by to show her tomorrow.
I have not done dogwood blossoms before, I am happy with them The blossoms are 10ga. the stems are 1/4" round stock and the leaves are 3/8" square stock.

I couldn't have said it better, that is beautiful work. How long did it take?

I have a potential customer who wants dogwood blossoms incorporated in her railing. I admire you business savvy, very good business card.
