While this brooch has nothing to do with Jack the Ripper or anything else from turn of the century London, that’s where the inspiration came from.
The focal is carved resin, maybe 3 inches long. Large by beady standards. The surround is a mix of 8° and 11° seed beads. The fringe has a lovely red cast. Reminds me of stained glass windows.
Crystals and copper charlottes finish the edges, with faux leather and a pin on the back.
