Ballistic Rose Brooch

Quote:
A space-age adornment that makes a subversive stand-in for brooch or bow-tie; to be worn over the heart for extra love in times of conflict.

wiw some really lovely ones u posted there ..

--------------

what do u guys like in terms of 'closures' ???

there are these with the needles at the back and u just slide it across ur shirt...

gasolinealleyantiques

and then there are needles that point in toward your body and you put a knob on the inside of your shirt to close it.

shipsbecks.wordpress

are there any more kinds of needles / pin closures ?
could you post the underside of the pins you have :p
i find even safety pins will make permanent HOLES in my t-shirts.. i really don't like the holes

^ Hey Gius...
Glad you like...
I personally prefer the first pin style..
It is much more comfortable..
& I am more @ ease b/c the possibility of an injury is slight...

The Ballistic Rose Brooch is great gift idea...
So tenebrous & romantic, rly...

I think we need a thread for bracelets...
Cuff-links...
& Random bits such as head-wear, gloves,
wearable trinkets, etc...
Could be fun..

the pin one is def my favourite, it's much more comfortable and it doesn't bulge out, although I don't really wear brooches that often

^ Oh no, soft, I actually love the black one...
& the example photo you posted is magical... too cute...
It is very fun...
I want a large portion of the mercibeaucoup stuff on that site, rly....
It just sooooo good..

I only just figured out that all of the accessories aren't displayed
until the accessory section is actually selected...
b/c I completely missed that star upon first viewing the site...

The Bird brooch is my favorite because you can wear it many different ways. The description says it comes apart!
