Hi arthurdent,
I think your project is a great idea.
We can start Led Candle business with a little money.The brooch is always sell well and the problem is how to use your idea on it.
Thank you for sharing it.

All that would be needed are brooch pins to glue to the back and gold ribbon to cover the edges. That or as a pendant... With halloween coming up this could be a good seller.

With the LED turned on. The LED is designed to flicker like a candle flame and comes with a replaceable battery. This could be useful as a pin, a brooch, or a costume piece or decoration.
