Good Idea: Wearable Bud Vases

For the anti-corsage moms out there, how about a wearable bud vase with a single precious bloom inside?

These Mignon Faget pins are genius.   I especially love the sturdy little portafiori rosa pin.  As graceful and delicate as roses are, they are tough little creatures endowed with weapons to protect themselves (look at any florist’s hands and you’ll see the evidence!) Here, the harsh thorny stem becomes a piece of art in sterling silver.

This is a sweet gift that can be worn again and again.  Best of all,  add a little water to the pin so the blossom can stay hydrated all night long!

A cheapie alternative?  A small glass test tube with a brooch pin attached!

    So clever! I love that bottom one – almost enough to convince me to start wearing roses on a regular basis.
