An elegant butterfly pin brooch that has been lovingly handmade in my garden studio using the ancient craft of enamelling.
This delightful brooch has been hand made using vitreous enamel. The colours are inspired by topography referencing world maps and atlases.
This technique creates a crisp, contemporary design and striking depth of colour. The pendant is backed using a clear flux enamel to allow the natural burnish of the copper to show.
Each brooch is handmade and unique so slight variation in colour can occur with firing.
The enamel is durable and tactile and has a robust copper back. The colour will not fade but care needs to be taken as it is a form of glass on metal.
copper thickness 1mm.
Pin length 5.5 cm. Butterfly H2.5 X W4CM
