Brooches and pins are the most versatile of pieces of jewellery… they can be worn classically, on either side of the body, on a jacket or coat lapel, a scarf, a dress or sweater – or you can throw caution to the wind, wear them on a shoulder or sleeve, even on a skirt, think of kilt pins!

My larger brooches all have a connection to allow them to be worn as a pendant, and all can be supplied to order for people who are left-handed. Pinning a brooch on from the so-called ‘wrong’ side can be very difficult!
