Who says you can’t teach an old brooch new tricks?

One of the items that has been passed down in my family has been a gorgeous antique cameo brooch. My grandma gave it to me when she passed on. I was desperately trying to figure out how to incorporate the piece into my wedding day when I stumbled upon this image:

Pinning my family heirloom to my bouquet? I will most definitely be using this!  What an easy way to show off any antique brooches, earrings, or anything else you could possibly affix to a ribbon.

When my best friend Nicole got married in October, she attached a brooch to a ribbon and tied it around her wrist for a chic vintage glam bracelet. (ahem…technically I tied it around her wrist…)  🙂

those are my lovely hands fixing the bow...

Any other fun ways to incorporate your favorite vintage jewelry?  (besides wearing it, of course)   I’d love to hear ’em!
