I’m persnickety. No one doubts this, right?
I found a comfortable denim jacket that met all my standard criteria: comfortable fit, great length and perfectly-sized pockets … and the jacket was even in the exact shade of color I wanted. I didn’t hesitate to buy it, even though it had the maker’s tag sewn right on a front pocket. Ew.
Why didn’t I hesitate? Because I knew I could trim that little tag right off. And I did.
Which left an unsightly dark splotch where the denim underneath the tag didn’t fade during the pre-washing-whatever-process that denim jacket maker people do. I suffered through wearing the blemish for about a week. Then my new Nunn Design components arrived. Ta-daaa!
I just knew an oval brooch would camouflage that darkened denim blemish perfectly.
And it did! But there is more to the story. As if perfect camouflage isn’t enough … the brooch can also be worn as a pendant. Score!
I like this Nunn Design ® brooch so much, I’ll be adding all available shapes to my shop: oval, round, rectangular. Thank you, Becky Nunn!
And yes, I made multiple brooches while I experimented. Because they’re super simple to make … and super fun to wear.
Persnicketiness pays. Oh, and if you like the art in these brooch designs, you’ll want to read all about my secret.
