When country star Miranda Lambert walked down the aisle in May, she carried a unique bouquet built not from flowers but from colorful antique brooches. The inventor of her amazing arrangement? Columbus entrepreneur Jen Rose Diehl, who creates wedding accoutrements out of vintage materials for her fledgling company, The Ritzy Rose.

Diehl spoke about making found items fashionable.

I'm originally from Suffer n, New York. It's about 30 miles north of Manhattan. It was on "Sex and the City" once. It's not as bad as they made it look. A job at Abercrombie & Fitch brought me to Columbus.

I made a brooch bouquet for my own wedding, which was last May. I made my dress from scratch. We made all the signage, all the graphics, screen printed the tablecloths. Everything was this ginormous DIY project. So I didn't want to have to, on the day of the wedding, fiddle with a fresh-flower arrangement.

My husband and I are total vintage junkies. We go junking every weekend. We go to flea markets. It's a dirty, awesome treasure hunt. You don't go to the brooch store. You have to go get dirty and get pricked by these needles. You come home, and you're covered in rust.

If I had a time machine , I would go to 1962. I would go to a department store and buy all of the stock of those big enamel flowers.

It's like a puzzle how the brooches all fit together. I have about five or six thousand pieces, but everything is one of a kind. If it were the same group of pieces over and over again, I would've gotten really bored after doing three or four bouquets.

Miranda's bouquet was originally five pounds. I got it down to about three pounds, two ounces. I wanted her to hold it in photos. I didn't want her to be like, "Oh, my God! I can't lift this thing."

I try to put in a personal touch. One girl had her grandfather pass away exactly a year before her wedding. He always told this joke about five pennies. I don't know what the joke is - she never told me - but she said, "Can you somehow put five pennies in the stem?"

Three things I can't live without are caffeine, my MacBook Pro and my husband, Jason.

Other things on that list would be Evernote, Pandora, Pinterest, my iPhone, Nutella and Netflix on demand.
