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.
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!
