hi,  I made a couple of brooches with instructions to use 20 g wire.  I really like the brooches, but I just can't fathom how one can actually wear the brooch with 20 g wire.  It's just too thick to puncture through a lapel or whatever.  I've used little pins for brooches, but this particular design uses the wire for pinning, as part of the design.

One idea that did work, but may not be practical for most.  For a gift I received a 2 piece magnet where the magnet actually holds the pin in place.  This is similar to work type IDs that have a magnet.  With this set-up, there is no need to poke a hole in the garment.

One of the brooches is really too top heavy.  One suggestion for this pin was to glue a magnet under the heavy part.  My magnet as a gift can be used with different pins and is not a permanent fixture.

any thoughts/ideas?  thanks.
