DSC03013 (1024x618)I solicited advice for how to finish these ladies.  I took all of the suggestions under consideration, but  in the end wanted something a bit more subtle.  I used gems to embellish the front a bit and give them some sparkle.  I glued down the gems so they would stay put on the brooches and would hold up under wear. 

I like how they ended up.  How about you?
