is it an object?
is it jewelry?
perhaps both...

fairly normal to put one's jewelry away when not being worn
rather a pity...
framed, the piece is always in full view and thus continues to be appreciated
removed from its context, it regains its autonomy as an independent brooch
when no longer worn, the branch is reunited with the bird, and the brooch becomes an object to contemplate
