I've had this brooch for a long time. It is made entirely of old watch pieces - a perfect example of reuse. I used to wear brooches often when I was teaching. They were always conversations pieces - an entry point for a student to start a conversation. I wear them less often, now.
This one was a gift. I don't wear it often as it is rather large for my short stature, with the dangling chains. I do like it - I'll have to find a reason to put it on. I like the idea of parts of one thing finding new life as parts of something new.
