Geode Wings Brooch in wall nicho
The brooch here is close to my heart. It's one of my first mixed media compositions combining silversmithing with needlefelt. I created a frame from heavy-gauge silver with prong settings to hold the geodes. There is a foundation of needlefelted wool upon which I have layered silk, tiny glass beads, Swarovski crystals, vintage sequins and fine feathers. The shape and placement of the stones resembles wings; the insides of the translucent geodes are positively glittery with very fine crystal formation. The combination is full of movement and life, ready to take flight!
This piece would make a very special presentation as a gift.
The brooch measures 3.25 inches top to the ends of the feathers, width across the tops of the geodes is 1.25 inches.
This very special nicho has two doors covering the glass one! It's got extra charm to be sure. The inside is lined with gilded linen and gold leaf, while the outside is touched lightly with gold, including the shutters, inside and out.
