Making Rose Boutonnieres

Adding Pearl Accents

Now I'm going to have a little fun adding some pearl accents to this rose boutonniere.  I'll have to cut them into different lengths to get the effect I want.

Pearl pins come in several different color choices, so the end look is up to you.

Make sure all sharp ends are buried deep into the flower heads or stem so no sharp points stick out the back of the boutonniere.

I began adding pearls randomly, pushing some deep against the stems and leaving others out to create an illusion of depth.

Don't be too perfect in your placement.  Cluster some pearl heads close together and some farther apart.

It's easier if you cut a lot of pearls at once rather than each one as you design.

I start out spacing them apart, deciding how far I want the pearls to actually travel down the stem.
