Pearl and I have been collecting beech nut cases, to make these broaches like the ones made in the 1940s, I've seen. Use nail polish as paint and floristry wire and tape to hold them together. Add a little wool if you like, it helps when sliding a saftey pin on the back. see gals we can be green and glamourous!
Have fun making and wearing them . Ps love to see a photo of yours.
