We've reimagined a vintage laundry pin (e17!) into a brooch. It's got a set of five dangling shiny strand in oranges plus lots of frosty and glilmmery white and clear beads.
This brooch is a collaboration; I sit down and make these with my lovely sister Cindy Schmidt, who you may or may not know as the artist behind Cranky Cats.
The pin is rather substantial, aka thick — you'll want to treat it as you would a kilt pin. I've taken a picture of it open so you can see it clearly.
particulars: • made from: vintage brass pin, carnelian, glass - new and vintage, freshwater pearls • actual measurements: the pin is 2 inches long (see the shot with the measuring tape) • hand made by me and my sister
