Our final guest selects for Dazzle Invites is the founder of the popular instagram account @thebroochcurator. They created the account two years ago to promote and celebrate contemporary brooches made by jewellers from around the world. As a collector, brooch lover and jeweller themselves, the brooch curator says it has been a marvellous journey of discovery and enchantment, the sole purpose of the account being to promote the work of others.
Read on to find out which four pieces they selected from the Dazzle Invites collection…
