    I think you can definitely find beads/gems to fit in the empty spaces and have it look great. That big sunburst-style on is amazing!

    @Corilee13: I have no idea at all, sorry. Maybe go into a craft store and ask around?

    Best thing to do is check out your local fabric and craft stores. If you have any bead stores in your area that might be an option as well. Michaels has some small acrylic jewels that could maybe work, but they probably won’t look that great under close scrutiny.

    You could potentially use one of the purple stones from the smaller piece at the upper right of the sunburst brooch (the one with the bright green leaves) to replace the missing small purple one.

    For adhering the replacements, I’d choose a craft glue that’s fast-drying, and dries crystal clear. I found this on the Michaels website, it would probably do the trick: http://www.michaels.com/3-in-1-Advanced-Craft-Glue/gc1630,default,pd.html?start=31&cgid=products-generalcrafts-glueandadhesives

    @Corilee13: Yup, those rhinestones should work perfectly.
