Day 8 of the 12 Days of Victorine: “Brooch” the Subject

Okay, go ahead and groan at the terrible pun in the title, but this is not at all a terrible brooch. I don’t claim to know anything about vintage jewelry, but this sweet cameo brooch caught my eye.

Did you know brooches have been used since the bronze age? I’m imagining some woman of the time clutching her gaping shirt and asking if any of her friends has something she can use. Maybe she created one out of her frustration. (I’m kidding, of course.)

I once was in dire need of a safety pin at college and none of my friends had one. You’d think I’d carry one everywhere with me evermore, but nope. At the very least you’d think I could carry a brooch with me, for heaven’s sake.

For some reason brooches catch my attention, as this one did. I have a mini collection of them without intending to. If you win this one, I’d love it if you’d send me a photo of you wearing it.
