3 awesome ways to use your brooches

We all have a collection of beautiful but random pieces of jewellery or accessories like brooches and clips that sometimes sit in the closet collecting dust. I was trying to reorganize my closet recently and found some of my brooches. I was inspired to put them to good use. Since there are no rules when it comes to fashion these days, there’s no reason we can’t have some fun with these pieces.

Here are 3 really cool things that you can do with those brooches NOW with what you already have in your closet.

1. Create a new Statement Necklace

Some new statement necklaces? Woot woot! I wouldn’t pass up on that. You can easily add brooches to your existing necklaces to create some bold, unique pieces. Necklaces with gold/silver chains, pearls, beads etc will work well as you can clip the brooches to them.  Take a look at a couple of my creations below:

This is the original necklace I had from Forever 21…

This is after the brooch-a-mation (ok I just made up that word, but you get what i mean??)

Try with 2 brooches…

Try them on a pearl necklace.

2. Add bling to a scarf

It looks great on an infinity scarf too…

 3. Give your bracelets an instant facelift

On a bunch of bangles to create instant drama…

The combinations are endless and you just have to play around with placement to achieve the effect you want. The more random pieces you use and cluster, the more dramatic the effect will be. No need to limit your creativity to just brooches. If you have rhinestone clips, buttons or old earrings, you can easily use them too.

I would love to see photos of your own DIY creations with brooches. So do send them in.
