Turning a Brooch into a Ribbon Necklace #Broochhacks

Earlier in the week I shared a post about how men could rock a brooch in an alternative way, today is for the ladies!

I've often found that brooches can look stunning as pendants for a necklace and one of my favorite, quick ways, to use a brooch is to slip it onto a ribbon that coordinates with my outfit. Some brooches make it easy - they already have a loop where you can slide a ribbon or chain to wear it as a pendant, others you'll need to be just a bit creative with to make sure it looks nice and hangs well.

Here are a few photo examples for inspiration!
