This time of year we tend to see lovely brooches in the stores. They also happen to be something of a trend now. The one I have here is a micro mosaic. Lots and lots of itty bitty pieces of glass put together to make a lovely picture that you can pin onto your blouse. Large pieces like this tend to be heavy and pull down on delicate fabrics. So pin them into enough layers or heavy enough fabric to support the weight of the pin. I like to pin such pieces into the base of the collar so that the heavier fabric in the collar supports the pin and the fabric doesn't get damaged. Also, I like the look of a pin there, something like a cameo.
