The crystal stems must be bent before inserting them from the outer part of the bouquet. Otherwise they will show on the underside of the bouquet.
The stems of the Lomey Brooches can be bent by hand or with needle nose pliers. See how they are concealed from view in the bouquet below.
I don't like to cut the stems short, because I feel they are more secure when they are buried into the foam and angel hair wire that covers the armature's handle.
Finish by being sure that the underside is tightly bound by the bullion wire and that all stems and jewels are securely held in place.
The finished bouquet is stunning and would make any bride proud to carry it down the aisle.
The look can be uniquely yours by adding your own personal jewelry to the final look. You can also change the metallic sheen by choosing gold angel hair wire and gold bullion wire instead of silver.
