Mixed Metal Corsages

Mother's Day, Spring Dances, Proms, Weddings...1 common denominator to these events? Pretty flower corsages!  While working on some larger soldered components this week,  I found that if I layered some of my filigree and brass pieces, they made cute little "corsages".

These are layered onto small copper washers that have been covered with lead free solder that I hammered and patinaed for texture. I then added Czech glass beads with a cool bronze metallic finish, using sterling wire, then dangled everything from hand wrought sterling earwires.

These are so versatile...equally sweet with your  little black dress or your jeans and t-shirt!
