Yay... I made a Brooch Bouquet!!

For the past two years, I have been an admirer of Brooch Bouquets.  Given my interest in vintage brooches, it is no surprise that the Brooch Bouquet idea is at the top of my list for a “must have” on my wedding day.  In the artist community (on Etsy) brooch bouquets are very popular, AND very expensive.  So earlier this year, I set out on a mission to create my own bouquet.  And I had the opportunity to create one for a friend’s wedding.  After a few you tube videos, and several (did I say several) days of bidding and losing and bidding and winning brooches on Ebay, I was able to create a gorgeous bouquet!! 
I now understand why people charge so much… J
