    Awesome!! Please post pics when you're finished, I'd love to see it!

    Yours turned out so so pretty.  I am doing mine with blue flowers and all white/silver rhinestone brooches . My ladies are all white/cream  flowers with blue/silver rhinstone brooches.   FYI.  use ebay for brooches, I used free shipping and didn't pay over 2 dollars for any of my brooches.  Oh and don't be afraid that they come international, I received all of mine within a week of payment.

            I started mine as well, but have decided to tap the family members for brooches, I have brooches from all of the women in our family and grandmothers, great grandmothers etc, I have amassed almost 200 family brooches and have them wired, I am using a foam form in the middle to create a globe presentation, on the wedding day I plan to ring it with lilies, and wrap it with the ribbon I am using throughout the wedding.  I wanted to create something that would be an heirloom and the idea started with my late mom and grandmas jewelery, I loved the idea of including them I will post photos as soon as I have it finished
