It's Corsage Show n' Tell Day!
A couple of weeks ago Elizabeth proposed the idea of a show and tell day based on her corsage tutorial. I was all too excited to accept the challenge and try my hand at making one. So here it is, my corsage for show and tell. Being that I'm a metalsmith I had to include that element into my project. I work a lot with old street signs so that is what the heart in the center is cut from and the banner stamped AMOUR is cut from sterling silver.
I came across the hot pink and polka dot ribbon just this week on a trip to my favorite antique mall.
This summer I bought a bunch of these vintage pin backs, it worked perfectly for this.
