I was inspired to make this piece by the beautiful Celtic and Viking brooches. The simple mechanics of this style of fastening makes it suitable to use as a brooch or scarf, kilt or hat pin. The last image in the sequence shows you how to wear it.
I have made the brooch with multiple thick copper wires to form the shape, which I have hand forged and then woven with thinner copper wire, to create an attractive pattern but also to make the structure very strong. I have attached faceted Labradorite drops at the terminals of the brooch and to the pin, creating an ornately detailed piece
I have oxidised this piece to really highlight the detail.
The brooch measures 1 1/2" across and the pin is 2 2/3" long.
This item comes in a jewellery box.
