In the field of contemporary jewellery the brooch is a very common and also much discussed form of jewellery. One of the special challenges of making a good brooch is to find an adequate solution for the pin which connects the piece securely to the body but goes beyond being a mere functional and invisible part of the backside. It should be an essential part of the brooch in terms of content and aesthetics. Mechanism and attachment of a brooch hold a tremendous potential for the design of a brooch in its entirety and need to be developed with equal importance.
