One has lost the fulcrum – the element that plays an essential role in situations, activities, events. That special something that keeps life balanced.
This brooch is my attempt to capture that feeling. The cabochon is Apache Gold. The face carved bone (not ivory) surrounded by a halo of bugle beads. While this is a departure from my usual bright colors, I find the piece rather haunting.
That face stays with you – perhaps a talisman that all will soon be right.
