This beautiful cockade is the perfect badge for the Military Brat! Approximately 3" across, choose a silver-plated pin or an ornament loop. Contact me directly for bulk orders.
The Dandelion was selected in 1998 as the official flower of Military Brats. The symbolism is perfect: Even though they are considered a “weed”, they do not take nutrients from their surroundings. Dandelions are neither submissive nor dominant plants - they live as equals in their surroundings. When a dandelion is plucked and a wish is made as the seeds are tenderly blown, the seeds float on the wind, finding a new home. There, the seeds find a new home and flourish, living side by side with their new neighbors.
People in the past wore a cockade to tell a story about themselves. I love researching what those stories were and why people wanted to tell them. People today have stories to tell too, so that's what motivates me to keep making cockades! What's your story and how can I help you tell it better?
