Artificial flowers have a long history. They were made by the ancient Chinese and the Greeks. For centuries, artificial flowers have been made from pottery, enamel, metal, feathers, paper, and many other materials. Creating artificial flowers is a meticulous art form. Every petal, stem, leaf, and stamen must be cut, shaped, painted, and carefully assembled by hand. Some are designed to be arranged in a bowl or vase for display and others to be worn. Part of the appeal of artificial flowers is their permanence and unblemished beauty.
Brooches have adorned the clothing of men and women since ancient times. They might be functional, such as keeping a cloak closed, or purely worn as a decorative accessory. They can be ornate or simple, large or small, and made of just about any material imaginable. Brooches are a way of asserting one’s individual tastes by personalizing the garment it adorns.
