Eco-friendly Cherry Blossom Bridal Set

Cherry Blossoms have been a bit overdone I'll admit. But there is something so appealing about the little curled petals and twiggy stamens that people in every craft medium have at some point felt the need to feature them, despite the overwhelming availability of mass produced blossom charms, fabric and prints. I submit to you yet another attempt!

I'm interested in creating adaptable bridalwear, suitable for use after the wedding for special occasions or anniversaries.

What makes this set eco-friendly? The blossoms are cast in pewter upcycled from old beer steins! So if you're ecologically minded, or just plain like beer, any of these pieces would make a great addition to your collection. 

Lastly, I wanted to give this set some character with a beautiful antiqued finish. The stamens are dusted with gold leaf to resemble pollen!
