There is an old superstition that says something like ‘how you start the year is how you will end it”. I am wondering if the same sort of thing applies to blogs.

I wrote my first blog post about the rain - lots of rain - and unfortunately it really didn’t stop raining here until just a few weeks ago.

When that much water falls and flows, it leaves marks - watermarks.

Our first look is naturally always trained at the front, but when we do take the time to look at the back of a brooch, it will oftentimes reveal a surprising aspect for us, a delightful little secret. With this exhibition, I would like to let you in on that secret, something that typically only the maker and the wearer know about. I hope you will enjoy with me this selection of brooches by…See More
