This brooch is entirely handstitched on silk tweed with slivers of cotton velvet and pure linen.
The image is digitally printed onto cotton, varnished, crackled and burnt to create an aged canvas effect.
The beads along the base of the brooch are Ethiopian prayer beads. These are handmade usually by recycling old aluminium pots and pans.
These are seriously wearable multi-media artworks.
Adorn yourself the traditional way or go wild!!!
