Brooch Me!

Hey All!!

Meet my latest obsession - The Brooch.

I have been going so crazy about brooches that I bought some, dug some and fashioned some out of old and new earrings. They are unlike any other piece of jewellery because there is no rule that says you have to wear them any specified way. Of course, a brooch adds a lot of pizzazz to a vest, a blazer, a coat, a shirt, a sweater, i.e., to all the regular pieces one might think of wearing them with. But this piece of jewellery looks so good with even the most unconventional pieces of clothing.

I have been experimenting with scarves, hats, purses and belts. Good old brooches work with all of them. And they are available in so many shapes and sizes and colors that however fussy one is, he/she will still find one that works.
