May I present, my first brooch… Cherry Blossom
Cherry Blossom was a commissioned piece. It’s made with sterling silver and Rose Quartz.
Turning a Tree of Life pendant into a brooch was quite a challenge. There’s just no where on it to attach a pin or even a magnet. Not without having it show. I tried everything I could think of. I decided the only way to do it was to design my own pin mechanism. So, that’s what I did. 🙂
Once I figured out how to design the pin mechanism, I was still left with the problem of… what to do with the bail? Turns out, brooches don’t have bails. Took me a bit to figure that out too. What I decided to do was wrap the ends of the frame in such a way, that a ring can be attached and the brooch can double as a pendant too.
A brooch AND a pendant.
100% sterling silver, 100% hand made. 100% over came the challenges.
Victory is mine.
I can now offer… brooches.
