Corsage anyone?

 Ages ago I bought some huge corsage pins but they need a composite sort of thing on them and not a flat brooch. So I've had a fiddle about and made a big corsage from separate pieces.

 Whats the verdict?
 I rather like it. The back is a bit higgledy piggledy but its a prototype. 


 I had to enlist 'Venus' to model it.


 Unfortunately she is royal blue but never mind.


 A white background helps.


 Here's a shot of the big pin.


I think I might list it on etsy to see what happens.

My etsy shop is eerily quiet..my fault. Even I haven't been there.
Nothing but tumbleweed and teabag paper....

I love it. With autumn fast approaching and the need for big scarves, shawls and cardigans these will give any outfit a lift.

It's a very attractive corsage - go for it! And then make some more?

Don't fret about the tumbleweed in your shop - it's probably because of the summer break.

Love the colours you've used. I fancy knitting a wide scarf/shawl. (better start now as I'm not the fastest knitter!!) Sarah.

It's gorgeous! You could call them Cardy Clips : )What about a few beads dangling from the rounded end? Some with, some without.
