I wondered why she would want to purchase so many of these pretty, shiny lapel brooches. She told me that her daughter was creating a bouquet for her wedding made entirely out of brooches! I was amazed and impressed. Her daughter wanted to get a brooch from each mother and grandmother, and then supplement the rest of the bouquet with vintage brooches. What a beautiful, sentimental item to keep for the rest of your life! And what a masterpiece you can create for your wedding day.
