Here are those compartment brooches filled and ready for there tops to be riveted on.
The middle brooch on the top row is for an 18th Birthday.
Sweet story. I did a workshop with the Birthday girl at DCA in 2000. She would have been 9.
How time flies.
I started making these brooches in 1995. I have always collected and at that time I housed my collections in wooden Printer Trays.
That was my inspiration.
My work has moved on quite a lot since then but these brooches still remain a bit of a signature.
