Enter the project - no so much a project, as a way to display all my lovely brooches and keep the wee one from playing with them.
|The problem - overflowing brooch receptacle|
|I took a length of wide ribbon (mine was wired) and a curtain ring|
|Folded over like so and secured with a couple of stitches|
|Voila! brooches as art|
From the top Black Lily Brooch by BlackSwan, Gold coloured flower, vintage (my Momma wore this to Mum and Dad's wedding); Enamel pear, vintage from my maternal Grandmother; Rata flower silk brooch, Tamsin Cooper; Pebble Brooch, Green Valley Crafts; Kina button, gift from my bestie; Felt and fabric diamond Green Valley Crafts; Outward Bound button - yus! I survived and all I got was a brooch....oh well; silver and mother of pearl squares, can't remember the name of the designer but purchased at Hanne Andersen, Wellington ; Pebble and Silver, again can't remember the designer but purchased at Chris Cole Jewellery, Wellington; and finally Tape measure Rose by Cotton Kiwi
|Only problem - more brooches than ribbon, on well, I'll have to make another one.|
