New! - Mardi Gras Mask Stick Pin

Here it is, the Mask Stick Pin inspired by those pink crepe paper roses I previously mentioned. The handle is free swinging with a real freshwater pearl and vermeil ornament. As with all my masks the beads slide up and down the handle for fun. A delicate pink rose sets in the center of this sparkling pink mask.

There's been a renewed interest in wearing pins and brooches by fashion trend setters like First Lady, Mrs. O - Michelle Obama who loves to wear brooches in this article by Mary Tomer . Want to know what's hot? Stars like Sarah Jessica Parker, Cate Blanchett and other folks on the red carpet do know, and are featured sporting brooches in this article Trend Watch by Cynthia Sliwa

Want to creatively wear a brooch in a new modern way? Or when to wear the right brooch? There are two short articles here by Melanie Spark and Victor Galindo that will tell you how.

This brooch would look lovely on a black sweater or jacket, hat, or scarf. Pins aren't just for lapels anymore. 


  1. I wanted to say how much I love this one. The rose and feather in the center really seal it. Perfect!

  2. Thank you! Creating this mask truly was an inspiration and my personal favorite so far.
