For the third year running, Studio 20/17 will once again buck the notion that brooches are only for ‘old ladies’ and celebrate the brooch’s universal appeal.

“The wearing of jewellery has very ancient roots going back 75,000 years. Traditionally worn for ornament or utility, to convey messages of rank or wealth, or to follow superstitious custom or fashion, the brooch is making a contemporary comeback. It can be perhaps one of the most expressive forms of body adornment. From subtle and discreet tiny pins perched cheekily on the tip of a collar, to loud, bold, massive brooches, allowing full creative expression of both the wearer and maker, the contemporary brooch goes beyond the decorative and functional to convey a dialogue between the wearer and viewer”. Says Bridget Kennedy, co-owner of Studio 20/17.
