Brooches and pins were the Anglo-Saxon version of the zip! But far more attractive! Used to fasten clothing and cloaks back then, we now also have the luxury of wearing them just to look good and dress up our garments.
All cast brooch designs are one-offs. Similar designs can be made up in any metals or pieces can be commissioned to your own design. Stones can be included to your choice if required. Brooches are generally fitted with a hinged brooch pin and catch but can be made with a stick pin or tie pin fitting.
