Crazy for bug pins!

bugs bees butterflies
pearls, jewels golds, blues

small, large, up, down

collar, shoulder, cuff

new, old, vintage, cute

jazzy, dainty, funny....


I started collecting them about 12 years ago - a yard sale buy, an estate sale purchase, a friend's shop, a gift from someone. I don't have a huge amount - and for me - that IS unusual because my collections tend to multiply without my even noticing. I used to hang them on my draperies and curtains - that has stopped. Now my style is to top off my shoulder, down the side of my chest, the top of a cuff with a bee or a butterfly - jeweled, glittered, gold or silver. There's always a comment from someone about there being a bug on my shoulder or a butterfly on my back. It tickles my fancy and others I'm sure. Jennifer
