The Beauty of Collecting Broches

The beauty of the perfect broche.

Many people collect many items in which they carfully display for everyone to see, but my collection is only seen when it is worn. I collect broches. Hidden from everyday view my broche collection is seen only when I go out. They range from diamonds to animals and flowers. Since I have so many of them I cannot show them all, but I did photograph the ones I wear and love the most.

On a Sundy church service you may find me wearing one of my broches. My collection started when I was about 25 years old and since then the collection has expanded to 4 jewelery boxes. I buy them in state sales, flea markets or garage sales and I usually get one of them as a gift from my friends & family. Broches can dress up any outfit and depending on the one you wear they can be the center of attention or they can be a disaster. I avoid gotty broches and I go for the more elegant and classy ones. This is my chosen few for you to see some of my precious collection.
