Find new uses for old brooches.
If your brooches are missing stones or have broken fasteners, repurpose them into art!
Brooches were designed to perform a simple function --to hold things together. Over the years, however, practicality evolved into glamour. Vanity ruled! Because of their versatility, women used them casually on a sweater or formally on a velvet dress.
Brooches dazzled in mesmerizing rhinestones and crystals to brighten every outfit. Consequently, women collected a bunch of them.
However, when broken many of these goodies ended up in the bottom of jewelry boxes.
Remember our UP attitude!
They may have lost their function but they haven't lost their sparkle. Brooches find their way in mixed media home decor projects as well as purse UPcycles.
