I love my mom's vintage rhinestone pins. I have one that is like a snowflake that I wear on a pair of my brown gauchos and it makes them POP. I have one duffel bag where it's covered with various pins-some from my Campfire days, some from Hot Topic, some that I've amassed from French Camp, and some that I just happen to get. It makes statements, as one half of the strap is devoted to Happy Bunny pins. However my friend has the funniest pin-"Atheism Is A Non-Prophet Association" that is on her backpack and another friend had one that said "Mommy Make The Scary Republican Go Away".

tulip-I have many uses. I use them to hold together a vintage cardigan with no buttons. The funny ones are for backpacks, duffel bags, or even one of my purses. I'm a fan of them on gauchos especially plain black ones. I'll try it on almost anything. I don't like it on sweatshirts or jackets though.

I have a rather morbid interest in Victorian hair jewelry; here's a brooch with hair in a woven style:

And to continue with the Victorian theme, a scene cut from Irish bog oak, which I gather was used rather prevalently during the times:

i really want some pins, i have hardly any! inspired by marie antoinette i'd really love to buy some pastel coloured bows and work something with that and some charms. i love going into art and craft stores and just buying loads of stuff and seeing what i can do with it.

Christopher Kane

Brooching the Subject

The glittering, Swarovski-clad brooches that arrived as part of Christopher Kane's autumn/winter 2008-9 offering are bound to become as much of a cult as his glittering 'Bolster' necklaces.
