Brooches and Pins

Brooches are made in the same way as pendants but instead of hanging them on a bail we attach a brooch back.

What is the difference between a brooch and a pin? 

For me a brooch has a traditional pin back, where the pin is locked into a spoolie.

 Whereas a pin, is just that a long single pin that is held in place by weight and placement on the fabric.

There are pins caps to make the pin safe and secure.
