My new jewelry passion is taking vintage brooches and turning them into necklaces. I really love this new pendant.
I removed the pin backing and filed down the sharp edges. I then attached the brooch to the metal chain with two jump rings.
Luckenbooth brooches are often given at weddings and engagements as tokens of love.
In Scotland from the eighteenth century onwards small plain heart shaped brooches were worn to protect against evil spirits, the evil eye or the attention of the fairies.
The pendant is approximately 1 1/4 inches x 1 1/4 inches
