Yeah - I've been really busy ;P

In addition to making wrist cuffs...I've made some more Victorian style brooches using vintage kimono fabric.  These were a lot of fun to make - and I hand sewed all of them

Wow, I really like the third one and the last one.  They totally could fit in with a conservative office but pack some punch.

They all look beautiful! Great job, they look better than most of the brooches I've seen selling for 20 or 30 bucks.  Smiley

snacker - Thank you so much.  I think you are right - they could pack a punch with a conservative outfit (exactly how I love to dress!)

junquette - Thank you!

aliciasjoy - Thank you so much!  Although I'm not fond of browns - I do like how the second one came out Smiley

Sweetttart3 - aw...*blush*  Thank you!

fingertip - Thanks!

boldgravy - Thank you - that is a lovely compliment Smiley

molzy_dudess - Thanks!  They took me about 15-20 minutes each to make Smiley  I hand sewed them.
