My Novelty Jewellery Collection

Playable Trumpet Brooch

I am attracted to practical and whimsical things. Which makes me a sucker for jewellery that has a secret use. Like poison rings, perfume lockets and Stanhopes.

For example, the trumpet brooch pictured above actually plays one, shrill note. And the brass telescope pendant below opens up and lets you peer far enough into the distance to see if a streetcar is coming. Both are probably prizes from an awesome Christmas cracker.
