Pot metal brooch

06 Mar

I bought this pretty little brooch after I finished my Jeanette sweater. It’s made of un-plated pot metal, and the rhinestones are a little dull. But I like the effect. It’s a charming little thing.

It’s been chilly here in the Bay Area, so I’ve been wearing long sleeves and haven’t worn Jeanette agains since the brooch came. But I wore it yesterday to fasten a scarf around my neck. It was a last moment addition when the scarf didn’t want to stay put, but I really like the way it looks.

The weight of the brooch keeps pulling it to the center, and I keep pushing it back up to a jaunty angle.
