This gorgeous gold silk flower pin would make a perfect accent piece for your wardrobe. It's a unique little fashion accessory for you to dress up a dress, jacket or sweater.

I hand sewed this flower using the kanzashi method, which is somewhat like origami. I start with squares of dupioni silk and fold and shape them into petals, which I then sew together. This is based on a traditional Japanese art practiced by geishas.

The center of the flower is a really unique vintage black glass button with intricate silver lustre designs. I found this button one day while hunting through box after box of buttons in my vintage textile dealer's garage. I understand it is probably from the 1950s or 1960s.

This sophisticated fabric pin is very lightweight and will not sag on even a delicate fabric. This also makes it easy to ship as a gift.

The flower measures 3" (8 centimeters) across. It is finished with a goldtone jewelry pin securely sewn onto the back.

Your flower will be shipped in a sturdy box via USPS First Class Mail with Delivery Confirmation (confirmation is available to U.S. addresses only.) Expedited shipping available, please inquire for pricing.

Your flower will arrive boxed for giving...see last photo. Let me know if it's a gift and I'll leave the gift enclosure blank for you to fill in.
