These brooches were good to work on over Christmas. Not too much equipment to carry about! They are based on stumpwork techniques which allow for some 3D features to be incorporated. Musn’t get carried away with the 3D bits though, because you don’t want to get them caught in scarves, squashed by coats etc. but there is scope for some fun. I think I will aim to make a couple more and will mount them to sell in the card display area of the next TRAC exhibition. I’m going to keep this in mind for a workshop idea too.
