      I think Alicia’s post originally did have captions, but with the site changing over to the new system last year, some of the original formatting was lost. 😦

      In addition to their common usages, I’ve used brooches in my hair, on scarves, to cinch up extra material on the back of cardigans/shirts and on the sides of dresses, and as purse decorations. I absolutely love them, and think they are an underused accessory!
