Jewelry Bouquet Finally Finished!

Pin It

I have been working on this project for what seems like forever!
It has been strewn all over a desk in the corner of the kitchen. It is a good thing that we don't have a large family that would have to work around it.  I would work on it, then stand back and wonder where I was going with it from here.
I made a much smaller one a while back in silver tones with pearls and rhinestones. Then, I wanted to try out  gold tones with pearls and larger. Well, it takes a lot of jewelry and I was looking for mainly vintage stuff for both of them.
They are so different in size
I guess I am happy with the results. It is either a hate or love relationship with this. Either it is way too gaudy or it is just what you are looking for.

I have seen these on etsy and the prices are incredible.
I added this locket at the bow sight. Sometimes brides want to remember someone special on their day that cannot attend the wedding. Perhaps a parent or grandparent or special friend. This way a picture is tucked into the locket and is part of the special day.
Another side view. I used not only brooches, but earrings that are vintage.
Here are some more of the silver toned one

I am so happy to finally "cross this off the list".

I have them sitting in a crystal vase to keep them upright and not crush the ribbons.
I think it is a pretty cool idea to be able to keep your bouquet for years.
I keep on admiring it...
Here's hoping someone else admires it and will buy it at one of my shows...

  4. How charming! Thank you for linking up at Feathered Nest Friday! Hope to see you again this week!

  5. Displays will range in materials, shapes, sizes, colors and costs.
    Another trend is towards hosting a wedding welcome party the night time before the main event to which all guests are invited, rather than the more exclusive rehearsal dinner.
