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 animals, and the brooch becomes an object to contemplate
