Bud Vase Pins

All the charm and romance of the Victorian era is captured in our elegant sterling silver and brass budvase pins

In Victorian times budvases were called "posy holders" or "tussy mussies". They were also a gentleman's fashion item.

To use the budvase simply place thin stemmed flowers, herbs or sprigs from your garden in the vase and fill with water from a dripping faucet or small sqeeze bottle. capillary action will keep the water in the budvase with the flower. After wearing the pin be sure to shake the water from the vase before storing.

What is displayed in the budvase is as varied as your imagination. A wide variety of flowers, leaves and berries work well. Orchids are especially long lasting. But be daring in what you do...try small crocus, violets, snowdrops...experiment with apple or cherry sprigs or herbs like rosemary, mint or lavender. Vegetable sprouts such as peas with a few flowers and curly tendrils look lovely.

In winter huckleberries and holly are nice. Dried or silk flowers work well...you should wrap dried flower stems in florist tape to keep them solidly in the vase. You'll find that the more you experiment the more you'll enjoy the versatility of your budvase.
