Victorian Poinsettia Brooches
I have always liked Victorian styled things around the holidays. I think these 2 brooches have a Victorian look to them.
When I started making them the other day I had intended for them to be pendants on necklaces. By the time I finished the beading and making the ruffles edges they were way to big for pendants. So.....brooches they became. In the end I think it worked out for the best. I'll take the beads I made for the necklaces and turn them into a bracelet and earrings.
The soft diamond one is my favorite. I like how the champagne beads and black opal seed bead ruffle frame the bezel.
on work table......earrings, earrings and more earrings......
