As my collection of brooches expands, this one is one of my favourites. The peacock brooch has a padded body with silk embroidery and the tail feathers and wings are bead embroidered with embellishments of crystals and glass pearls. To add more detail to the brooch, the beak is sculptured and painted clay and there are small wire and bead ‘feathers’ at the back of the head. An instant best seller so if you want one then please contact me to see if I have one in stock, otherwise you can order one for no extra cost, allowing up to three weeks for the work to be executed. The brooch measures around 90 x 40 mm and costs 60€.
The pomegranate has been used for centuries in many cultures as a symbol of strength and fertility. In this brooch an old symbol has been given a contemporary look with red and gold spotted leather, goldwork raised borders create an opening from which granite chip ‘seeds’ peek out. A small delicate fringing of glass beads and granite chips add movement to the brooch. The brooch is backed with green faux suede. The piece measures 85mm x 50mm and is priced at 45€. If you wish to purchase this brooch or commission something similar then please contact me to discuss your requirements.
