"I handcraft our No-Tilt Brooch Enhancers or Brooch Converters as they are sometimes called. They are my own design and are very easy to use. They keep your brooch from tilting forward when worn as a pendant. As far as I know, this is the only design available that does this. My brooch enhancers are made with a large bail that a 10 mm bead can pass through, allowing them to be worn on a beaded necklace, thick chain or slide. They are available in either sterling silver or gold filled versions" Elaine

Horizontal Pin Brooch Enhancers Directions

These are made to use with a flat back brooch that has a horizontal pin 3/4" or larger. You can use with brooches that have an open or recessed back, but the no-tilt feature won't work. Two small rubber stoppers are included to keep enhancer centered on long pins.

  • Simply slide the pin on the back through the two holes in the enhancer (shown top right).

  • Two small rubber stoppers are included to keep enhancer centered on long pins (shown second from top). The stoppers are not needed If the pin is less than 1-1/8" long. With the stopper no matter how long the pin, the enhancer will stay centered.

  • Put the first stopper (B) on the pin slide toward the back where the hinge is. 

  • Then slide the enhancer onto the pin.

  • After the enhancer is on the pin, slide on the second rubber stopper (A)

  • Adjust by sliding the enhancer to the center, then push the stoppers up against both sides enhancer.

Vertical Pin Brooch Enhancers Directions

These enhancers are for a brooch with a vertical pin and will fit most brooches with a vertical pin.

  • These will work only if the pin is in the center of the brooch, otherwise your brooch will be off center as a pendant.

  • Rubber stoppers are not needed with these.

  • The bottom of the enhancer should be towards the bottom of the brooch.  This is usually the bottom of the pin also, but the pin may be upside down in some cases. 

  • Just remember slide the pin through both holes of the enhancer. If it's upside down, take it off and reverse it.
