The classic way to wear a pin was at the shoulder, complemented by pearls, hat and gloves. Pins and brooches draw the eye, and placement is key.

Brooch Ribbon 2 Tier Necklace
Silk or Satin Ribbon-1 1/2 " wide cut into 4 (24" strips), Sandpaper, Clear Nail Polish, Glue Gun, Jump Rings, Paper Towels
With your wire cutters, snap off backings to your jewelry, using the sandpaper sand down any rough edges, use clear nail polish on any sharp edge remaining.
Arrange your pieces to your liking. I used 5 brooches and 4 pairs of earrings.
Add jump rings using the needle nose pliers to connect the pieces together and finish off with ribbon. Experimentation is key to success.
