Burgundy Rose Brooch

Tonight I sat down for a few hours and made a new Brooch for My Etsy Shop! I tried out some bead embroidery and did my first bead embroidered rose! I love how it turned out and I really like how it has a similar look to bullion roses but with sparkle.
I used burgundy Dupioni Silk with black lace overlay, my new burgundy size 15 seed beads, some bronze stamped metal leaves, 3 vintage rhinestones, and a little feather.
