I fell in love with this classic pattern last summer in Italy when I came across it at a spectacular villa on Lake Como (Villa Monastero in Varenna). The pattern is called Rhombille tiling, or tumbling blocks, and it appears in floor mosaics as far back as ancient Greece.
It’s hard to believe these brooches are flat because they look so three dimensional. I love the way they seem to dance and pop.
This has been a popular item also among men - looks very handsome on a jacket lapel!
