This carduus or artichoke branch brooch is designed and made by me.
I made it on wool felt, hand embroidered with different materials and then attached to a metal brooch pin 32mm(Japan).
Back side of the brooch is white faux leather.
Size of embroidered part is 1.57x2.16 in (4x5.5cm).
Colors: mint green, lilac sequins.
- Materials: wool felt, sequins (France&USA), DMC threads 384&992, faceted beads (green iris mat, lt.ametyst, aqua green), glass bugles Miyuki, glass cut, Swarovski pear stone mint green and bicones erinite, Kite beads iris satin, gekko beads, Goldwork Metallic Rough Wire (India), textile glue, faux leather, brooch pin (Japan).
- This brooch has delicate elements in it, such as metallic wire, so please handle this pieces with care and don't put it in metal box.
- Try not to hit or drop this brooch, because Swarovski crystals can be broken.
- This brooch is not lightweight, so it's better to wear it on dense fabric like jacket or coat.
