stomachers

While they were extremely fashionable at the turn of the twentieth century, the stomacher, a piece of jewelry that is designed to be pinned to the bodice of a gown, has long since gone out of style. Modern clothes don't really allow them to be worn, so royal examples often languish in the vaults -- or are redesigned.

 

My giant magnetic silicone brooches are a tribute to those “stomachers”.

Let them get out of the vaults and be worn again!
