Its hard to imagine what a cool piece this is. Chain is thread through the broach holder. You can adjust the length at which it sits. Overall length of the chain is 32" finished off with gourd-shaped beads that ensure the chain won't un-thread. If you have ornate broaches/pins that you don't want to pin to a delicate piece of clothing, put it on this holder to wear as a necklace instead. Broaches pictured are not included.
