Custom-made Brooch for an Order

So, a friend of mine ordered a brooch from me couple of months ago, for his mother's anniversary gift. He pretty much left it up to me with a budget, and I pretty much wrecked my head for ideas and trying out various designs.

I've never made brooches before, so this was a real challenge for me. I also wanted to incorporate some odd shaped gemstones into the piece just so to make it special.

Then I tried a new technique of wiring and paper jewellery, and so this was the outcome.

With some gold accents in the form of a bird in flight and very delicate gold maple leaves, on top of the wire-paper and gemstones, I created my first brooch!

This was priced at $30 and **SOLD**
