The Repair Shop Episode 9 November 2019 – Repairing a Brooch
On my first episode of series 5 of the repair shop, I had the pleasure of repairing a well loved brooch for sisters Alison & Lorraine from Dundee. The brooch was exceptionally sentimental to the ladies as the brooch was once their grandmothers and was borrowed by their mother to wear on the night she met their father. The brooch had been broken for 40 years until its repair this year.
Being made from hollow gold, I had to make a ‘splint’ to restore the structure, and make a new pin and hinge. I was delighted with the results, as were Alison & Lorraine
