gorgeous!!!!! I’m still in the process of finding enough brooches… not as easy as I thought it would be on a budget!
Thank you! I can’t decide if I really love it or not yet :- . Thought I’d see what kind of feedback I’d get on it to help me decide lol. Good luck with yours!
I just finished my brooch bouquet.. a great way to get brooches.. is to ask everyone at your bridal shower to bring you a brooch. I have to say it was the best way.. then your bouquet is extra special! My finished bouquet has over 100 brooches now! It’s massive.. easily over 10#! Good luck!
Wow that looks great… what a good job
Wow i love the bouquet! Im not too sure about the bottom of it though… Looks like too much going on with the flowers and the tulle… Maybe like a wrapped handle and a ribbon or something of that sort….
We are doing a brooch boquet for my daughter she wanted all bling. I purchased all the brooche’s on ebay from china…the quality is fantastic! Be sure to look for Free shipping. Not only did we use brooches, but pendants and earrings. They will all work as long as you have something to attach the floral wire to. If anyone is interested in the sellers I used feel free to message me
Hardial2be: I agree. Iv’e taken the handle apart and am redoing it 🙂
You can find some great deals on ebay. I also used pendants, buttons and clip earrings. Another way to save is to look for items being sold as needing “repairs”…missing stones etc. They sell cheap and you can just be creative and place them to where the flaws are not seen.
Does this look better?
I’ve decided to make a new one in silver to use and am going to try to sell this one.
It looks much better without so much going on at the base. The brooches in the top one (not sure if it is the same as the bottom one) are so gorgeous on their own and the flowers were taking away from them. I don’t even think you need the netting in the bottom one. The brooches stand alone. I think yours are the best ones I’ve seen on here. Seriously.
I think it is sooo beautiful!!!!
Thank you so much! I think it looks better now too. They are the same brooches, I just took the handle decor apart. I only did the netting to help hide the wires from the bottom view, but I guess no one is really going to be walking around holding it upside down lol. It is getting alot of views on ebay, hope it sells. I don’t know what I was thinking doing a gold bouquet when everything else is silver! Oh well, it was fun to make.
Its BEAUTIFUL! I made mine on top of silk peonies with silver brooches. For anyone considering this, I highly reccommend EBay! You can find beautiful brooches cheap! 😉
