I've been quietly admiring Alexis Bittar's beautiful creations for some time now. I particularly like her sublime lucite flower brooches. I immediately bought this Topshop pin when I saw it yesterday. It may not be hand sculpted and hand painted like those of Alexis Bittar, but hey, this gorgeous acrylic piece is the closest you get to a big statement accesory for this price. I'm already thinking of a myriad of applications: pin it on long silver chains, pin on blazer lapels, or on my silver satin clutch....the sky's the lucite... :).
