Enamelled Brooch Corsage 04 with Flowers
Gorgeous Enamelled Brooch Corsage 04 is a colourful cluster offlowers and floral wafers.
A beautiful bouquet of flowers was the thought that came to me when I looked at the first brooch I made. No two brooches will be the same as I will use a selection of decorative media and different colour combinations for each one.
The Corsage series of brooches evolved as I played with a few ideas on a piece of 1.6 gauge sheet copper left over from another project. I loved the results I got on the first brooch and thought this design needed to me made again.
These pieces have been layered and fired several times to achieve the final look.
Brooch Size: 5 cm X 3.6 cm
Corsage is made on heavy gauge copper and will be approximately 25 grams in weight.
The back of the brooch was enamelled with what is commonly referred to as counter enamel or occasionally practice enamel. It is a mix of various colours. The brooch has brooch pin glued to the back. See picture.
I will send this piece in a little card giftbox.
My selection of enamelled jewellery makes wonderful gifts, and I am happy to make this style of colourful piece to order. Each one will be a unique piece of art jewellery.
I received a grant from our local district council which allowed me to buy an enamelling kiln. This has added a whole new dimension to the enamelled pieces I can make. I feel so happy at the way my designs have evolved from single layer enamels to multi layered jewellery and wall art.
