Radiant Heart Brooch
This one started with a cheerful plastic heart pin I found at a real cavern of a shop in Paris. I don't even know if you'd call it a shop. Floor to ceiling boxes of STUFF to paw through, just what we were looking for!
I fell in love with the delightful shape and perfect coral color of this heart. It harmonizes beautifully with my handpainted ribbon. The combination is subtly accented with a wreath of sequin leaves, held in place by tiny Swarovski crystals hidden between the layers. The leaves cooperatively fell into a laurel wreath-like arrangement, best shown in the photo of the reverse.
The heart pin can also be worn on its own. It's probably 50 years old, and has some surface wear, visible in the main photo.
2.5 inches (64mm) across.
Backed with wool felt and tagged 'KVA' in sterling silver. Tie tac finding.
