I am an architect who loves wearing brooches and i have a reputation for trying to turn anything into a brooch. I collect new and old buttons, beads, old jewelry, tiles, paper, rocks, vinyl, guitar picks and other guitar parts, wire, plastic, resin beads and whatever other bits and pieces look interesting. These items are then recycled, reused or reinvented into a new brooch or pair of earrings
The description of each item states whether the materials are new or vintage.

Since I don’t buy the bits and pieces that make up my brooches in mass and due to the handmade nature of each brooch, each one becomes a unique piece of wearable art. This means you won’t see another person wearing the same brooch as you.
