Vintage brooches speak to me... On a recent drive from my home in Chesapeake VA to my friends house outside of Raleigh, NC I stopped at an antique store located around the half way mark of the 3 hour drive. This store had some fabulous brooches! Many to highly priced for the $40 budget I had given myself. Nonetheless, I looked all of them over and quite instantly found 3. One in particular spoke to me... It said buy me, and make me beautiful. It said a whole lot of other things too. I just can't remember. Once my creative thoughts start to flow my mind is bombarded. Anyhow, I learned from this visit to the antique shop, that I need to charge more for my artwork when I use vintage brooches.
