I don't know when I started having a thing for vintage brooches, but over the past few years, whenever I go to a great consignment sale, or a fantastic church rummage sale like I did this past weekend, I always look for cute big brooches. Some may have a little bit of whimsy, and some may have a ton of sparkle! But the reason why I look for them is I attach just one to an old vintage gold chain and just attach it so it hangs down.
My original brooch that inspired them all!

I've seen so many people (my lovely mother included!) find several vintage brooches and attach them together and form a big statement necklace. I'd LOVE to do that once I find enough, but for now, I think these simple one brooch necklaces suit me. They add a great amount of pop to an outfit or just simply float along as a great companion piece. (I can just envision that new black pearl with a LBD! Ahh love it!). What do you think? Would you do it?
