Brooches add texture and flair to outfits, and have been trending for the past several years. And what is good about brooches is that you can wear them in diverse ways (e.g., on a belt, hat, or lapel) and even wear more than one. As such we decided to review brooches from black owned brands. See the company and product links below for details.
