Pretty, seed head brooch pin made from sterling silver and vintage Bakelite plastic. The design is based on wild cow parsley found in the hedgerows. The Bakelite is sourced from vintage tiddly winks from the 1930's and 40's, and comes in a range of colours. Each flower measures about 70mm in length and comes with a brooch back with a safety catch for securely attaching to clothes.
The brooch pins are inspired by cow parsley and hogweed found in the hedgerows and along the canal paths whilst out walking. The seed head is such a beautiful, delicate form that I wanted to capture that design in metal. Silver wire is hand forged then soldered together to form the stem then riveted onto the vintage plastic.
