Do you collect or wear bird brooches?

Now I know there are many people that collect bird brooches. Not as unusual as it sounds as the number of bird brooch particularly owl brooches have been flying of the virtual shelves. We have recently made it easier to view the vintage brooches collections with a new look to Jewels and Finery. So bringing the bird brooches collection to the main page.

Along with owls, other birds are peacocks, kingfishers, parrots, swan, dove, ducks, swallow, eagle and vultures. there are those birds that can not be identified and due to designer artistic inspiration.

Attach a bird brooch to a jacket's lapel, hat or bag. Even to a hair band or evening bag to have a different look to anyone else.
