Thanks for the nice comments, y'all!  I'm not big on pink, personally, but I think it made the nicest combination out of the available options.

I also like the fact that there's something slightly dangerous about them. They remind me of ninja stars. You could fling them at would-be assailants. You could quickly pluck them off of your blouse and launch an attack. They'd be the prettiest deadly weapons ever.

(we all get confronted by would-be assailants on a daily basis here, right? It's not just me, is it?)

Funny you should say that... I did notice that the points were very sharp & crisp, which I didn't expect.  I'll wear it when I carry my lipstick switchblade.   Smiley

Your brooch is awesome.  I would definetly wear something like that.  A little girliness (or a lot) is almost rebellious these days anyway Wink.  Nice work.

I dig it.  I used to pick out a lot of those paint swatches at the hardware store and use them for bookmarks when I was younger.  Hmm...  bookmarks made out of paint swatches...  I'm formulating an idea!

Before the meltdown, somebody asked about where to find the rosettes.  So, just in case you're still out there:

I found them in the same aisle as other small hardware (washers, screws, etc.).  Lowe's had them on pegs near other "specialty" type pieces, bagged in sets with the correct screws & something else.  I didn't like those as well, so I bought the ones I found in their wall of small-hardware drawers.  The drawers are labeled and have picture examples of what's inside, such as gaskets, "misc./science fair projects" (which I loved finding!), nylon plugs, and screws.  They're called mirror rosettes, and they should be labeled by name.
