A corsage for the Women Of the Year, it was my honor to be chosen

A client of mine asked me to make a corsage again this year for the Women of the Year from her military wives group.  What an honor to be able to create something special for someone who does so much for our military families.

And keeping with our love for our country and our flag I went with the colors of red, white and blue. It was only fitting for this special piece.



I never get sick of these colors.  It is always fun to pick a great color red for a traditional rose, with a non traditional flare....glitter.


Little blue accent colors help make the corsage pop.  This is not a wrist corsage, but one that will be pinned on.  Small little red peals soften up the texture and of course there is little bits of crystal glitter added to the roses.



Matching box to keep your keepsake in after you wear it is always included with each piece.

Thank you so much for taking a peak today.  Please feel free to let me know if you are interested in a one of a kind piece for yourself or that someone special.
