Love tea? Need to let the world know? Fabulous! This handmade brooch will do the trick!
Carefully balancing the word tea inside a heart, I've sketched, and re-sketched this design until it looks just right! Then very careful hand sawn and pierced this design into a 1mm copper sheet with my jewelers saw. Then, plenty of careful sanding and polishing...
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 4cm long and about 4cm high - if this one sells I can make more, and the next 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!
There are so many great words you could make into a brooch, 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.
