    For Karen and Jewels1900, the Shipton or German same style brooch!

    In pic#3, I use it as a clasp for wearing a flapper length braided seed beads rope in two rows.

    In pic#4, it is used as a bale for a white jade devil's work (grand mother's spare earring!).

    Brooches can be used in versatile ways!!!

      Thanks to both of you, Bonnie and Mike, for your kind comments and loves!!!

      Thank you Thomas, Fleafinder, Judy and Aura for all your loves :-)

      Beautiful brooch.... You would excel as a jewellery designer.

      If I had to have a new life... I'd go for gemmology and jewellery making :-)
      For now I love to mix my pieces without altering, that way they are really versatile.
      Thank you so much for your lovely compliment, Martika :-D

      Great idea! I love beaded ropes and this brooch is gorgeous! Looks very unique mixed with the rope and your jade.

      Exquisite. There's not enough adjectives. Wondering if pic. 3 is actual size?
    8. kyratango kyratango, 2 years ago
      Gillian, thanks for your interest and appreciation!
      Pic#3 is slightly smaller than reality, the brooch is 29mm or 1.1/8" long.
      The whole combination in pic#4 is 7cm or 2.5/8".
    9. racer4four racer4four, 2 years ago
      So many similarities with both my brooches!
      I just don't have the creativity to use mine the same way as you do.
      Beautiful ideas Kyra.
