I really thought that this brooch was going to be flimsy or delicate but that is not the case. The detail is lovely and it isn't think or dainty enough that you will be scared to wear it. I love how detailed and dainty it appears but it sturdy in hand. She is absolutely stunning to behold. This is my first "She Loves Blooms" brooch but I know this will not be my last because of how lovely she is. She also arrived very quickly to the United States.
