What are you most proud of? How delicate it looks, even do, the green color is quite strong! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Patience!!! lots of it. You can not rush when making this type of rose. The brooch has 100 inches long strip of silk, and we have to be super carefull to give this soft gathering. But the result.........it is great!! so, please just get your hands at it!!
