Creating new goodies for the Calyx sale!
One major item is a new line of brooches (I try to create a new one every year or two). This time my theme is "Deconstructed... Up-cycled".
Deconstructed is defined as "To break down into components; to dismantle."
Like quilting, I started with a big piece, cut it into lots of small pieces, and reassembled it into various patterns. After making a background, I then embellished the small pieces with hand stitching, beading, charms and/or buttons. The pin is then backed with leather and signed.
Here are some. They average 2 to 4 inches in any one direction.
Hope you like them... (let me know!)
and there's more...
