    Another wonderful Holiday or Anytime gift that are easy to make and give you a chance to have fun and be original! I’d probably use polymer clay and inset images or beads/gems instead of the metal brooch, but that’s what makes it so cool! you could use anything! Turquoise and any “cowboy” stuff is traditional BUT the non traditional Is my favorite to make!!! TY for the cool share!
