Monkey Business

I bought this unusual little monkey brooch a few weeks ago but I haven't had chance to share it. Cleo, the new puppy, isn't a massive fan of laptops and will do anything to make you stop working and play with her instead so I haven't been blogging or tweeting all that much this week.

The brooch is made out of sterling silver and inlaid with marcasites. I am quite tempted to do a little DIY to turn it into a necklace, but I'm not sure whether the weight of it will mean this is possible. The monkey on the bottom swings freely off the perch which I think would make this brooch a rather interesting pendent. I might have to have a play around with the chain connecting in different places.

What do you think - brooch or necklace?
