Geode Wings Brooch in wall nicho
This very special nicho has two doors covering the glass one! It's got extra charm to be sure. The inside is lined with gilded linen and gold leaf, while the outside is touched lightly with gold, including the shutters, inside and out.
The brooch here is close to my heart, one of my first compositions combining silversmithing with needlefelt. I created a frame from heavy-gauge silver and added the prong settings to hold the geodes. There is a foundation of needlefelted wool upon which I have layered silk, tiny glass beads, Swarovski crystals, vintage sequins and fine feathers. It's a wonderful piece full of movement and sparkle. The insides of the geodes are positively glittery with very fine crystal formation.
The brooch measures 3.25 inches top to the ends of the feathers, width across the tops of the geodes is 1.25 inches.
