    I'm back with another couple of questions - The first brooch needs a couple of stones and needs the pin. No maker marks to find on it. Looks like a Bow. The second brooch, the flower, has a different style on the back - has breather holes for stones. I wonder if anyone can clue me in on maybe who the maker is by the style etc. Also if these would be worth getting fixed. Thanks again for any help with these ! :) If more photos needed to help just let me know - will be happy to post more photos.

    It would be VERY difficult to repair the bow-shaped one without a laser welder. I'd replace the stones if possible and make a pendant out of it. Some are available out there on the Web, but it can be hard finding the exact correct size and color. The other riveted-construction one looks fine as it is.

    I can't quite tell if the second one might need some repair to the pin; but on either or both, one suggestion might be to check with https://rhinestonerosie.com/
    She does repair and consultation via email and snail-mail; and is a good resource for finding replacement stones. My wife has found her to be quite good, and less expensive than might be expected.

    I've found pins in a similar state to the first one. I've been known to thread a jump ring through the clasp and glue the clasp shut . Instant pendant.

    can anyone tell whom the maker was on either of them? they both have some weight to them.

    Thank you for the information. I'll look into that site.
