Similar to Ursa Major, I dyed this face with strong black coffee to take away some of the shininess. The nubbin above the left eye is an artifact of the flash; the surface is actually unblemished.
I suppose I was on a bit of a yellow binge, combining so may various shades. They work pretty well though. The ruffle is created by doing peyote increases every couple rounds. It can get a bit difficult to follow the stitch path after a bit; attention to detail is required.
A sunny brooch for summer days!
