And one more. I think it is time to change the pattern.
A small red set.
It’s just mid-January but the weather is very spring-like and the flowers on my balcony are growing higher and higher, so my collection of soutache flowers is also growing. This is a brooch which I made for my Mum. She loves brown. By the way, I learnt that chocolate brown is now the new favourite colour of my daughter. I wonder — why chocolate?!
I took part in a jewellery competition. The topic was Brazil. Unfortunately I didn’t win, but the brooch still looks very nice on my winter sweater.
Actually, I thought about an orange owl. Well, the initial idea has evolved a bit.
Spring is coming! And butterflies are too!
This brooch is a mix of two techniques: soutache and beading. For filling the petals I used glass beads with their holes covered with metal foil. This made the light bring out the colours of the beads in a very nice way.
