I sometimes come across these and am not a collector of them but have decided to write a page on brooches and will also love to show you a few designs and differing types and include a video so if you want to make one this will be helpful.
Do you use them? is my question I sometimes do at special occasions like I put them on at funerals and so on…maybe you use them maybe you don’t. Also, with modern jewelry types more likely available now made with fashionable costume stuff possibly youngsters may have a different culture too.
(Wikipedia attached)This will help support learning although may still have variations in a historical concept if described in differing countries.
From my experience cameo is carved in Italy but if you read Wikipedia it states Bohemia and French which I believe also changes my own idea of where it had evolved from. Also, it surprised me to see more gorgeous older types of cameo and design and art carving that had gone into inventing them. They are much older than I originally thought and also the reason they were made I did not know anything about re this purpose for kabbilist and talismans which are for lucky things.
Also, evolving in Victorian times some of these are worth much more and if you should ever get one e.g I once saw one made in England in auction with a horse design at that time and this had been years ago that one had been priced at £14000,and must be worth more now. Therefore, the ancient finds of these would be much more and worth more even in seeing them as an art experience.
Mackintosh designed after ‘Charles Rennie Mackintosh’. Are usually around today and some generalized other Celtic makes from Ireland. I come across plenty variety of these as I think they are still in production. But I tend to find the vintage types sometimes with gemstones in design sometimes no stones included. These are usually sought after buyers searching for them and create a modern day artifact and vintage acquirement, many loves these. Also, they are also around in pendants earrings and all sought ‘s.
Note) you can google search Mackintosh products should you wish to learn more about them
These are in plenty styles presently even earrings and pendants ‘the rose’ design
‘Bottle cap pin’ it has a lovely musical tune behind the video I hope this cheers you up too
I have found this lovely video which will be helpful if you want to go into designing a brooch and hope you can do this and that this video is incentive to improving creativity. It is not what you expect I am sure but I love things of all styles and I use to even want to get married using a ‘coke tin ring’ saying this I hope you still appreciate this simple video.
