A yellow, orange and red magma brooch.  It means business.
Step out of the way!

This pin was a lot of fun to make.  After so many sedate and corporate brooches, I needed to break out!  Shake up the bead boxes and create something dangerous.  Well, it looks dangerous to me…and given the number of times I stuck myself with the needle while stitching this…it was dangerous!

Those teensy red beads that make up the picots on the edges of the crystals are antiques, I am told.  Something from the 20s or maybe 30s?  They certainly are tiny little devils.
