EDITOR’S PICK: Before The Big Day georgia.peters@yahoo.co.uk

We were delighted to be able to get involved in this prestigious event by creating 15 special buttonholes for the VIP goodie bags. Each one was different, some for the girls and some for the boys. It was a lovely opportunity to use a quirky mix of materials and to showcase how individual you can make them.

We’ve got quite a collection of brooches and accessories, so we picked out some interesting little numbers such as this ‘love bird’  and perched him on top of an ivory rose looking back at a pearl and gold wire heart.

For the more flamboyant (and Scottish) groom, how about this stag’s head and feather brooch.  We wired up little beads, pearls and crystals in complementary colours and finished with a tartan ribbon.

_MGM0419

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And for the sporting enthusiast, three little vintage pheasant brooches, lurking in the greenery!  It never ceases to amaze us how many different brooches we keep finding, each one a little masterpiece.

This buttonhole we named ‘knight in shining armour’.

_MGM0416

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

… and for any flying enthusiasts or pilots out there, how about this buttonhole.

_MGM0407

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We’ve made loops of pearls and crystals and used a pretty four leaf clover brooch for this example.

_MGM0421

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This feminine buttonhole has a really pretty pale blue flower brooch to which we we’ve added pearls, lace and a subtle pale pink ribbon to finish.

_MGM0423

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Butterflies are always popular and here are two hovering together.  We found a little green heart to add to the stem.

_MGM0401

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This beautiful brooch in gold would look perfect on almost any outfit and we kept it simple with some ivory feathers and pearls.

_MGM0398

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And for the extrovert, how about bit of bling with this diamonte and red buttonhole

_MGM0428

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pretty pink butterflies and leaves in burnished gold are finished with a small heart for this example

_MGM0404

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

and a small bow brooch with crystal dropper was the perfect addition to this one which was finished with a subtle green ribbon

_MGM0409

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Feathers, diamonte, stems of crystals and a silver flower brooch made up this buttonhole

_MGM0394

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

and blue was the basis of this one. We added some pretty crystals, diamonte, tiny white flowers and finished with a colourful ribbon.  A sparkling diamonte heart added the finishing touch here

_MGM0413

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

An intricate carved bird in this mother of pearl brooch was the inspiration for the final buttonhole to which we added pearls, little flowers and finished with an ivory ribbon.
