Small brooch


#1

I just thought I wanted to make something different for a change. This is what I came up with and I don’t know if people even wear them anymore.

Hi Chris,

I make a lot of pins. And depending on the show I do well with them. I find it often depends on the age of the customer as to who buys them. I think the middle aged and older customer is the more likely market for brooches. I don’t sell a lot of pins at music festivals for instance.

I have made a similar looking piece and found that how it was displayed was the key to selling it. I would sell them faster when displayed vertically rather than horizontally. And I would often have a pendant option of the same piece which would move quicker.

I like the tube set stone on yours. A nice but of elegance I rarely do use stones and when I do I use cabs.

The short answer is yes, people still wear pins.
