Feeling in need of a little extra confidence? A bit unsure of your capabilities? Want the world to know what you are? This should do the trick!
I've carefully sketched out the fabulous word 'Artist', balancing open space and curvaceous lines, and then very careful hand sawn and pierced a 1mm copper sheet with my jewelers saw. Then, I have carefully filed and polished it!
I've hand made a copper wire brooch pin, and silver soldered it onto the back of the brooch. You can easily pass the sharpened point through knitted or woollen clothing (but the point is not thin enough for a cotton shirt for example). It has spent many happy hours in my tumbler to work-harden it. It's not lacquered, so it will slowly oxidise over time to reveal new magical colors.
This specific brooch is approximately 6cm long and about 3cm high - note if your order this I will make you another one, which will be slightly, wonderfully different and unique, as each word is hand drawn and hand cut.
Hand-drawing letters always makes me happy! I love playing with open spaces, light and shade, so this current obsession with copper words is a lot of fun! The first brooch I made was for me - I didn't want to wear a paper sticker with my name on it when I attended events, and thought that investing a bit of time and effort in making a proper badge with my name was a good idea, as it is unlikely to change and I can use it many times!
A few weeks after that I had a strange conversation with someone who asked me 'so, are you a proper artist?; I thought maybe having an official badge would solve the problem!
There are so many great words you could make into a brooch - I've made 'fabulous', 'amazing', 'lovely' recently and names look great too - customizing and personalizing this type of work is half the fun! If there is a specific word you would like just let me know. And of course this is quite easy to send internationally, or deliver faster.
