Many of us are familiar with the Mackintosh rose, probably the most iconic piece from this school. But Charles Rennie Mackintosh was a prolific designer. Much of his work was influenced by the shapes of flowers and plants.
Ziva Needlepoint’s latest free project is this necklace that has three tulip panels inspired by Mackintosh’ work. Be sure to scroll down to find the pattern.

Those lovely iconic designs in glass and fabric and wall stamping were mostly by Margaret Mackintosh and she should be given credit. Her husband, Charles Rennie, whom she met in art school, was the architect. They worked very closely and collaborated, so it is hard to say exactly who did what. But she definitely did those designs. Let’s make sure that is known!

You’re, it’s why I called it “Glasgow School” because Margaret was deeply involved in this. As was her sister & her brother-in-law. I love their stuff!
