The backing was made of luxurious soft saddle coque feathers in matching colour. The handle was slightly padded for extra comfort while holding ( and for a perfect smooth and round look), then wrapped with gold satin ribbon with a charming bow accent. In the center of the bow twinkles a cute vintage rhinestone button.
After checking this bouquet out of my Etsy, this lovely lady convoed me for a custom work of a bridesmaid bouquet (for her sister) which should be a little smaller and two boutonnieres for her fiance and his brother. Of course all should match the bridal bouquet and her wedding colours are bronzes, golds and rusts.
So here are what I came up with : two boutonnieres each made with a Sarah Coventry 'Sun Flower' earring. To gain a consistency, I handwired some cultured pearls ( the same with the ones I used in the bridal bouquet) with gold plated wire to add to the flower earring. added a stem, added gold goose spike, natural coque saddle, natural/gold hackle feathers, some burnt peacock herl for more texture and finally wrapped the stem with beautiful pale gold satin ribbon.
