Landscape

Here's a brooch that I worked on at the mixed media class last week using nuts and bolts.  Not my usual style but good for techniques. 


Gosh, I really don't enjoy soldering on those fiddly little brooch/pin findings.  Definitely not my number one task!


I love the colors in this - and the blackened copper sets it off nicely.

Beautiful work Ruth! Love the colours and mix of translucent and matt - can see a great avenue for stylish cufflinks through this...

Thanks for the encouraging comments. And yes Chui - my original idea was to make cufflinks but didn't get the thickness right to it had to be a brooch! Next time, it'll be cufflinks!
