OMG! I am totally enraptured by these retro-chic felt brooches handmade by full time Israeli artist Yali Paz-Gilboa. Her work is inspired mostly by the roaring twenties, the era when jazz music blossomed, the *flapper redefined modern womanhood, and Art Deco peaked.

*Flappers were a "new breed" of young Western women in the 1920s who wore short skirts, bobbed their hair, listened to jazz, and flaunted their disdain for what was then considered acceptable behavior. Flappers were seen as brash for wearing excessive makeup, drinking, treating sex in a casual manner, smoking, driving automobiles and otherwise flouting social and sexual norms.[1]
Flappers had their origins in the period of Liberalism, social and political turbulence and increased transatlantic cultural exchange that followed the end of World War I, as well as the export of American jazz culture to Europe.
