My inspiration for this brooch came from the stylized flowers used in Japanese design in the 1950s.
The centre is a pointed jet black Swarovski crystal, circled by flat trapezoidal Czech glass beads in cobalt blue and jet black.
The outer ring of the brooch is comprised of 3mm jet black Austrian crystals, tiny silvery seed beads, and faceted jet black seed beads.
The brooch is about 2-3/8" in diameter and about 1/2" thick (measuring from the back of the pin to the peak of the centre crystal).
The pin back has been securely bonded and stitched to the back, and all the layers of backing have been both bonded and stitched together.
According to the fashion magazines, pins and brooches are THE accessory this season; and we've got them, here at SPARKLE PLENTY.
