Brooch{ing} the Subject



For a long while I shunned the mere idea of brooches. My childhood memories are to blame; showcasing them as gaudy, over-sized objects that hung hideously from jacket lapels. Recently though, I've begun to see them in a much more forgiving light. Most important is the fact that they aren't reserved exclusively for lapels; there are a number of ways to rock a brooch other than how our great-grandmothers may have. I've compiled a little list with five of my favorite ways to adorn a brooch, or two...




pin to a flat barrette and wear as a hair clip


attach to front of belt for a new belt buckle decal


hook onto a charm bracelet for an over-sized trinket


use as embellishment and pin to scarf; wrist of glove; rim of hat...


pin to shoulder(s) [they don't have to match] for a unique epaulette
