It is heavy though you only carry it around for a short time. I used brooches, earrings, buttons, even a belt buckle 🙂 I hunted through thrift stores, sales at michaels and joanns. You can order a large quantity off eBay for a better price.

@DelilahDiamond:  I’m in the process of making my brooch bouquet. I have ordered most of my brooches from Ebay. They were almost all under 2.00, with free shipping. I also got some from my mom. Enjoy making your bouquet!

@DelilahDiamond:  I’m on my iPad and don’t have my pictures right now but I made a brooch bouquet.  For mine I used some silk flowers as filler to cut down the weight.  For the actual brooches I used a mix of things like brooches, cocktail rings, necklace charms, earrings, shoe clips etc.  I found two thrift stores near me that sold jewlery, and asked them to hold onto any oddball pieces they were given (things like a single earring or a broken necklace).  I was able to get a bunch of pieces really cheap this way.

Mine was 9.5 lbs!  Yeah, it was heavy. 🙂  It’s brooches and pearls.
