The Collectors: Vintage Frog Brooches With rikrak

Sep 17, 2010

by rikrak

“Everything old is new again.”  

Wasn’t my fabulous and crafty Grandma right about that? I just love it when great trends, fashion, art, and design take a page from the past and add a dash of creativity to revive, restyle, and reimagine.

Such is certainly true with the delightful return of that nostalgic accessory — the brooch. Whether made of glittery rhinestone or enamel, I’m glad to see such a glam-evoking, must-have piece of jewelry, reinvented in so many gorgeous ways here on Etsy! 

So let’s take a peek at some brooches with this edition of The Collectors series: Vintage Frog Brooches.

CS_frogbanner.jpg

Who (are you)? My name is Maria and I run The Vintageholic Frog, a vintage shop on Etsy.

What (are you collecting)? I collect frog brooches and pins.

When (did you start)? I bought my first frog brooch when I was 16, so about 11 years ago.

How (many do you have)? I have 25 frog brooches.

Where (do you find them)? Flea markets, thrift stores, Etsy, eBay and the good old mall. And, of course, some of them have been gifted to me.

Where (do you keep them)? My froggies take up a drawer in a jewelry armoire that I got on clearance at Target.

What (‘s a crazy/interesting story behind one)? A few years ago when I was still living at home, my mom came in from the backyard with a small box in her hands. Inside was a gorgeous frog brooch. It had gold tone arms and legs, an enamel green body and rhinestones running down the back. The box had been left in the sofa in our back porch. Obviously it was for me, but we had no idea who left it there. To this day, I don’t know who to thank for one of my favorite brooches.

What (piece would you like to add)? I would LOVE to get my hands on a vintage Trifari Jelly Belly Frog Brooch. But they are super hard to come by and are very expensive. Every time I go to an estate sale or thrift store, I cross my fingers and hope to find one!

Why (do you love them)? I love frog brooches because they are beautiful. To me, they are almost like miniature pieces of art. Plus, as far as collections go, brooches are very easy to store and don’t take up a lot of space.CS_frog5.jpgWhich (one is your favorite)?  I love them all, but I will say that the little green one with the moveable legs and arms has a special place in my heart. I found him in a case packed with giant costume jewelry pieces at an antique mall. I saw one of his little legs and knew that it was a frog brooch. When they opened the case for me, I was able to pick him up and discover that his arms and legs moved. I was completely smitten!

What (else do you collect)? I also collect vintage greeting cards. I have an album where I store my favorites and am currently working on scanning my massive collection.

Thanks so much, Maria!

Be sure to visit Maria’s vintage shop filled with treasures to add to your own fun collections. I’m also a great fan of her popular Blog Giveaways site — a great go-to for amazing free stuff!

How about you? What do you collect? I’d love to hear, please post in the comments below.

I’m Kristal Davis (a.k.a. rikrak ) and I just love seeing what folks are collecting. I guess I feel it tells us a little bit about what inspires them. The Collectors series, first published on my own little blog, the rikrak studio, is 11 and a half quick questions with a wonderful artist on what they’re collecting (apart from their art supplies!).

    I too am addicted to all things frogs. I have two living African claw toad frogs, many frogs and toads in my yard, and have one precious Robert frog broach. I collect broaches but have recently decided to focus on frogs, koi, and flowers. I understand the urge! If you would like to see a pic of the Robert broach, I would be happy to send it to you! Thanks for sharing your stunning collection. Sharon Kaczorowski

    My mom used to wear a frog brooch when I was young. I need to find it. Love your collection. I collect frozen charlottes and charlies from the 20's and 30's. It started when I ran across one at an estate sale that reminded me of a photo I had seen of my mom when she was a little girl. I have close to 100 now. They have the sweetest faces and each one is holding a toy or pet or bouquet. I love them.

    I have always loved frogs--not just brooches and pins but figurines, etc. I have a lovely frog pin for sale on Etsy--listed in vintage costume jewelry pins. I am new to Etsy and not sure I can figure out how to work it all. If you visit my shop under eyezon you will see this pin. It is for sale if you are interested. It is really beautiful and is signed on back: "Nettie Rosenstein". Was given to me by my mother-in-law sometime in the early 70's. I am trying to clear the decks of all my stuff. I am getting old and don't need a lot of possessions.
