Those are so cool! Did you make them yourself? About how big are they? And are they used to decorate? Are they very heavy? Tell us more!

Here is a link to a tutorial. They seem very very labor intensive. No wonder they are so expensive!
Seems like there has to be an easier way!

They had show on TV about them. Mostly you ask relatives to give you pieces of jewelry & then the company makes them up so they are expensive & if you don't have right jewelry wouldn't look right. I made a foam cone xmas tree last year after seeing one on here. I used old jewelry & old buttons & used wire to make U shaped wire to go through the shanks so I didn't use glue so could remove them if I wanted to. I think they would be better if you could remove them as you might "love Aunt Sue's pin" They are mostly made to carry as your bridal bouquet! Jan

Oh wow they really are beautiful and look fun to have, but yes - labor intensive to make. How neat for a wedding, though.
