What Are Brooches Made Of?

If you're anything like me, you're probably wondering what are brooches and what they're used for. I've written a couple articles about Brooches and what they are used for, including some fun facts that you may not have heard. Here are a few things that you may not have known about brooches:

 

What are Brooches? A brooch is simply a decorative jewelry piece designed to be clipped onto clothes, usually with the intention to fasten them collectively. It's usually made from some type of precious metal, most often gold or silver or another similar substance. Many people will buy brooches as gifts for their friends and family. Brooches come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors, and can be made into many different designs, such as flowers, butterflies, or other abstract designs.

 

Why use a Brooch? Brooches are primarily used to decorate clothing and add some flair to your outfits. You can find brooches available in all kinds of shapes and sizes and will fit into any existing outfit perfectly. If you don't want to buy new clothing, then a brooch can also be made to order, which will be great for those of us who aren't sure what our wardrobe looks like and need to make changes on the fly. Brooches can be made to match any color or pattern and sometimes have gemstones in them, such as the popular "Symphony" brooches.

What are some interesting facts about Brooches? Did you know that in ancient Egypt, brooches were considered symbols of power, celibacy, and fertility? They were even worn by priests on their sleeves, or around their necks.

 

So what are brooches made of? Most brooches are made from wood, although metal brooches are becoming more popular. These brooches can have gemstones, or just simple, flat glass. You can even get them with real plants such as roses. The materials may vary, but the finished product will be the same: a beautiful, personal gift.

 

How do I care for my brooches? It's important to keep them clean. If you have any spills or other messes on the brooch, take these matters to the cleaning supplies and let them get the job done. If your brooches are made from metal, make sure you dry them with a towel, before putting them away. A good air dryer should be used to speed up this process.

 

Do I need to re-stick a brooch? Not, if you're just going to be giving it away. However, if you're planning on keeping the brooch or passing it down through your family, then you might want to consider re-sticking your brooch. This is not too difficult and is actually pretty easy to do. Just take a needle with a small bit of pliers (a wire cutter works well for this) and slide the needle through the hole in the center of the brooch.

 

What are brooches for? Brooches make lovely gifts and are a great way to add a personal touch to any gift. They come in all kinds of shapes and sizes, which make finding one that you'll love is easy. You can find them just about anywhere, from specialty stores to your favorite online boutique. Just remember to care for them properly, and keep them in good shape, and you'll be surprised at just how beautiful they can be!
