Take a close look!! Yes... they are vintage zippers that I creatively sew into beautiful floral brooches. They are all one-of-a-kind (OOAK) original designs of mine which I initial and number on the back.

The brooches are all hand sewn (no glue used) and very lightweight. Most brooches measure 2 - 2.5 inches or 5.5 - 6.5 cm in diameter (details in description). Larger brooch measurements are added to the title for your shopping convenience. Brooches are arranged in categories by petal color, exceptions are arranged by dominant color.

Besides the customary positioning of a brooch on your shoulder they would also look great on a hat, handbag, belt or even in your home to decorate a pillow, tie back curtains, enhance other works of art, or whereever your creative mind takes you... what about a school's or organization's colors -- how cute in a brooch! If you don't see it, please ask.
