When my Great-grandmother passed away, all of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were allowed to choose a piece of her jewellery.
I chose this marquisite brooch. I love it… wear it often in winter, to pin up scarfs and cardigans. And often receive compliments when I do.
A small piece of my Grandy still lives in me with that brooch… cranky, feisty old broad that she was.
