These taffeta brooches are pretty and well made. I bought the purple and blue ones to wear with the hand beaded tuxedo tunics also sold on this site, and they look great together.

i think these are so beautiful, i bought one of each and then shared them with my friends. These remind me of the ribbon flowers my Momma and her Sisters, taught me to make as a child. I can not do that anymore. These more than make up for that. Thank you Ladies, these are really wonderful and sweet.

I got these beautifully well/hand made brooches in Autumn & Pink & Purple. I haven't had the opportunity to wear them but I am really looking forward to it. These pretty flower brooches have unlimited potential of "bringing to life" any article of clothing or accessory. I am still thinking about whether or not to purchase them in Blue & Taupe. I can't help but to admire the handiwork of these amazing women in Soweto, South Africa. And I am stunned that these blossoms are made out of silk! I must say initially I was not content with the poorly stitched safety pin "clasp". However that was very short lived and I believe I will purchase the Blue & Taupe blossoms. I recommend this item(s) to anyone and everyone who lights up at the sight of a flower. Take Care
