Little Oddities

Vintage jewellery continues to amaze me with the dazzling array of ways it has been designed. Two unusual specimens I’ve discovered this week are Duette Pins and Lace Pins/Coils.

Duette Pins are a set of dress clips that interlock into a backing to also make a brooch. Here are just some of the ones I found on etsy.

Lace Pins are clever little coiled pins with decorative tops that just coil into a lace shawl or collar. Aren’t they sweet?

Love WTP x

Duette clips are really neat - I think it is kind of amazing that they were able to successfully market and popularize such a "complicated" piece of jewelry. I can't think of anything like that today!
