Also consider wearing a vintage brooch on the following:

– scarves

– wraps/pashminas/shrugs

– bags


– shoes

– hair bands or clips

Brooch cluster – another option is to wear a group of brooches in a cluster probably no more than 5 brooches depending on their sizes. Pick a colour theme, topic theme or maybe cluster a group of brooches made in the same style.

Upcycling projects – brooches also make great wall art when framed or have a go at making a brooch bouquet?! Have a look on Pinterest to see some great examples of how brooches can be used to create amazing things.
