The brooch may be experiencing a comeback in the fashion world, but the Don’t Cast Me Away collection embraces it in an unusual way. The pins come together in abstract ways that mimic the structure of scaffolding. Of course, there is no real structure when it comes to their application.

Designed by jewelry designer and goldsmith Galit Barak, the Don’t Cast Me Away collection is an exploratory project that "examines society’s quest to preserve the aged body, juxtaposed by its natural decline and extinction," as written on Design Milk. In particular, the designer was inspired by everyday degrading architecture, hence the comparison to scaffolding. Delicate and minimalist, the Don’t Cast Me Away collection can take on a number of shapes and forms depending on the person.
