July brooch: wood, paint, laminate, oxidised white precious metal, steel pin. 65mm x 65mm x 30mm.
Inspired by Erigeron daisies. I’ve had an extra month to think about this brooch as the daisies were going to be the inspiration for last month, and so my ideas and designs have had more time to change and develop. I have lots of un-used elements that will be used in other pieces. I’m really pleased to have finally used wood turned on my mini lathe in a final piece (I’ve had it for two years!) and I liked the freedom to choose colours that working with paint gave me. (£495)
