October brooch: Formica, walnut, silver, oxidised silver. 83mm x 60mm x 20mm.
Inspiration for this month’s brooch came from a plant I saw on a visit to Chatsworth House. It is either a Rhododendron, Azalea or a Pieris – there has been some debate about which it is and if you have an idea please do let me know. I was drawn to the pattern; green leaves pointing upwards and yellow leaves pointing downwards. I used silver and oxidised silver to mirror this with laminate shadows hand pierced into the surface.
