I wanted to create a series of statement brooches and thought the beautiful shapes of daisies and echinacea in our garden would be perfect inspiration. Especially when the petals droop downwards and curl out to reveal their beautiful seed head. The sculptural form of the flower stem is created by hand forging silver wire, which is hammered into shape and soldered together to create the stem and flower head. The centre is pierced from vintage plastic and riveted to the silver with a handmade silver rivet.
Eye catching, sculptural brooch based on a daisy design and handcrafted from silver. The centre of the flower is pierced from a vintage Bakelite tiddly wink, which come in a range of beautiful, muted colours. The Bakelite is riveted securely to the silver flower with a handcrafted silver rivet. The flower has a long 55 mm brooch pin at the back, hidden by the stem, for attaching to clothing.
