A Vintage Brooch Can Make A Real Statement!
The vintage brooch is making a come back on the runways and in fashion magazines this season. But how do you keep a brooch on securely, even if the safety clasp opens? With a clear plastic or rubber earring back stopper, of course.
Insert the pin on the back of the brooch into the fabric. Then, slip the earring back stopper on the pin before you secure the roll over clasp. Work slowly to get the stopper on so you don’t bend the pin; it should be a tight fit. If the safety clasp opens, the little stopper will hold the pin to the fabric. The brooch will flop away from the fabric, which should alert you to the fact that it has come loose.
Wear your brooches with abandon now that you know our little secret! Antique, vintage or contemporary, the brooch is back, baby!
