never lose a pin (brooch)!

we have a very savvy clientele! jackie b, from nyc, came to an imani jewelry show with a fantastic idea. she showed us how she secured her pin to her clothing by merely adding one of our plastic earring backs to the pin. she did this after she wove it through her garment, yet before she closed the latch. that way, if her pin opened up, the plastic back would stop it from releasing the fabric! ingenious!!! we call it the jackie b technique! thanks sis!!!
