I can’t believe how popular brooches have been just lately – people wanting to add some sparkle and colour to winter tops, coats and scarves .
I actually ran out completely – Yikes! So hence it’s a bit like ‘Brooch City’ on my making table this week.
Actually, I kinda managed to spread to most flat areas of my lounge … there’s been shells on the coffee table, various brooch components on the dining table, and a rather spectacular spillage of swarovski crystals, freshwater pearls and seed beads on our hideous multi-coloured ‘80’s carpet (thank goodness for the lovely person who once gave me the tip of putting a stocking (pantyhose or tights depending on where you’re from!) on the end of your vacuum cleaner hose to safely retrieve them all.
Here are just a few ‘in progress’ pieces awaiting their backing and brooch findings. More colour combos to come…
Are you a brooch lover? What piece of clothing do you like to wear yours on?
