That’s the case with this brooch. The resin rose is very dimensional, almost an inch high, and maybe an inch and a half wide. Pretty. Pretty Big.
I knew when I started I wanted to bead some leaves around it, and was first thinking of three dimensional leaves, but they just weren’t happening. Then the idea changed into the rose emerging from it’s leafy bower, growing out of the painting, if you will. So, bead embroidered leaves in various shades of green, and some bugles to define the leaf veins.
This one is a keeper. It will be just the thing on my red winter coat.
