 The ever popular edelweiss flower ...a bit of context
"The Edelweiss flower was used in the 19th century as a symbol of purity in the region around the Alps and it was a flower highly respected by the people who lived there. In a novel written by Berthold Auerbach called “Edelweiss”, it is described how difficult it is to get the Edelweiss flower since they grow at heights of up to 3000 meters"
These little vintage brooches are made of celluloid and hand painted.
Wear your own little bit of purity and tenacity..
