Hello everyone, new member here and my first post! Thought I would share with you a picture of 3 brooch bouquets that I have made.  The larger picture on the right is the one I made for my daughter's wedding in the  summer of 2012.  It has approximately 75 pieces in it that included great grandparents brooches and cuff links, grandparents pearls, brooches and tie tacks, various other relatives and friends donations and a few special pieces I bought for it. The netting and lace piece is from my wedding veil. It now has a place of honour in a vase in her living room.

The other purple one I made for a co-workers wedding last September.  She supplied most of the pieces and it was about half the size and weight!

The smaller red one was a small sampler one I was making for display purposes when out of the blue an up and coming wedding planner contacted me to see if I happened to have a brooch bouquet on hand that she could rent that weekend for a promo photo shoot....so I quickly finished getting it together and can hardly wait to see the photographer's photos from the shoot!
