Sunflower

Standard

IMG_1631Another cameo brooch.  This one reminds me of sunflowers.  All the little seeds in the center, then the leaves falling away to the outside.  Not yellow, but a pretty pale apricot.

IMG_1635This brooch was constructed very much the same as Lolita.  A peyote bezel of seed beads, with a pin and ultrasuede backing.  The fun part…no let me correct that, the funner (is that a word?) part was adding the little lucite leaves around the outside.

The holes in the leaves did not exactly cooperate with my mind’s eye, so some improvisation was needed.  In the end, I think the back looks just as nice as the front…each leaf attached by it’s own personal bead.
