Sterling Silver with Ox blood Rubies
This brooch is featured in my book 'Wire Jewelry Masterclass' as one of the most advanced projects, due to it's 3D construction.
I have made it with hand woven sterling silver wire, which form the 5 petals.
I have attached 6 natural Ox Blood Rubies to the side petals (which have all been wrapped with silver wire) and one in the the central petal.
The whole piece has been oxidised to highlight the detail.
The pin that is visiable in the picture is hidden from view when you are wearing the brooch, as this is the section you attach to your clothing.
The brooch is 1 1/2" tall and 1 1/3" wide with 1/3" depth.
This item comes in a gift box.
