Some lovely person referred to my “pins” as “brooches” What is the difference????? I always thought a brooch was to a pin as a vas is to a vase.….a supped up fancy version of the lesser. A quick Google search enlightened me: A brooch is simply an ornamental pin. Pin being purely utilitarian, brooch being something more decorative. So I guess my original description wasn’t too far off. Pin=Safety Pin, Brooch=…..see below….
I’m seeing purple in the stores and catalogs….subtle shades that I quite like, which I’ve tried to capture here…..
And red is always a great accent color!
I’m also experimenting with leather….recycled leather scraps….I working on some new “brooches” featuring distressed leather and some of my most special vintage buttons.
