Catherine Wheel Brooch

A Catherine wheel brooch has a central hub and at least eight radiating spokes. The name comes from its resemblance to the St. Catherine torture wheel (also known as a breaking wheel.) While the name is still popular today, Catherine wheel brooches had their heyday in the 18th century.
