This is a large brooch that I made to show off a lovely lamp-work bead that I bought from ChrystalRose at a Bead Fair. I used copper-coloured copper wire in 1mm, 0.8mm and 0.4mm diameter, Chocolate Baroque-shaped genuine Pearls, Graduated Facetted Peridot Rounds, tiny Graduated Facetted Hessonite Garnet Briolette Drops and very tiny Facetted Cubes of Rose-gold-plated Copper, all bought from Jewellery Maker on the TV.
I drew the design months ago in the Autumn, but couldn't decide how to 'fill in' the eyelid, or what gemstones to use around the edge. Then I saw the Facetted Copper Cubes, the Chocolate Baroque Pearls and the Cuffs & Bangles DVD on Jewellery Maker, and the design just finished itself! The brooch is quite heavy, so I have added a handmade safety-chain and pin.
