One of the loveliest traditions for pincushions is the tradition of the Money Dance which is conducted at weddings in many different cultures. The bride and groom have money "pinned" to their clothing. This money is used to help with the costs of the honeymoon or for any type of savings the newlywed couple devise. These handmade pincushion / jewelry stands are a nice way to keep the pins used to gift the newlywed couple with their Money Dance pins. This makes for a lovely reminder of the generosity of those who came to usher the new couple into their new life together.
