When is a brooch not just a brooch?

When it has a detachable 'moon' you can wear round your neck of course!  Obvious really when you think about it.

I took the plunge and listed these over on Etsy today.  They are complicated.  They were are challenge to make and even more of a challenge to explain.  This is not your average brooch.  There is really nothing like it as far as I know.  And so, for the potential customer, there is nothing for them to compare it to.

I've always loved objects with special secret hidden spaces that only the owner knows about.  Writing bureaus with concealed compartments.  Or any of James Bond's gadgets.  Well, this is my version.  And did you know, when the 'moon' is not round your neck...you can use it as a spoon!  Look, you don't have to, but if you ever found yourself short of something to stir your tea with...then this brooch would come in super handy.
