Victorian Love Token Brooch
"Darling" has been named after the lovely Victorian mother of pearl brooch which I placed on the bodice of the wool flannel petticoat.
The mother of pearl is very thin and finely cut....it would have been a gift to a sweetheart....a love token.
I ponder on who they were, and make up stories about their lives together which kept the brooch so safe for so long.
