Spring Bud Brooch
As simple and fresh as the first leaves of spring, this elegant brooch features a piece of antique silk passementerie from France. Starting with that green silk quatrefoil, I added a knot of cherry pink to the center and some pearl 'buds' held in vintage brass caps. The wool felt leaves have just the right amount of dimension and a shape reminiscent of flying maple seeds.
This is really the kind of work I enjoy doing the most. Finding beautiful elements, like that antique silk, and bringing my imagination and collection of materials to the creation of elegant, original finished pieces. As I continue unpacking from France, I look forward to completing a full collection of new work.
The brooch measures about 3 inches at its longest, and 2 inches in width. Simple tie tac attachment is easy to attach to any garment.
It's light and fresh, and the colors will work with any season. I'd love to see this on an ivory cashmere sweater. Or a hat!
