All that glitters!

Good morning!
Today I thought I'd tell you a bit about how I work. Currently I'm based from home, so when my husband isn't getting under my feet, I'm normally at the table in the back room, with the sun shining (if I'm lucky) at cat at my side and a coffee in my hand. This is the perfect working scenario, as I can then spend my time twiddling and twirling bits of wire and buttons to create the perfect bouquet. Most of my bouquets are made up of vintage brooches, vintage buttons, glass beads, pearls, frosted flowers and the occasional antique lace flower. I love the fact that as each item is made to commission, I am at the whim of my brides imagination, and they always have such fabulous ideas and colour schemes.
I am trying to find a way of keeping everything organised, and since I discovered poundland were selling glass kilner jars at 2 for £1, everything is now in it's own jar, neatly lined up on my workbench!
Below is a picture of my current stock of brooches, I can't tell you how pretty they look sparkling in the sunshine, so this will have to do instead!!

Also, Button Moon Bouquet has been featured on another blog post, this time the lovely Viv at Poppy Sparkles has included my mini bridal bouquet in her pearl themed wedding moodboard!
