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...
