Sheet music and curly hair.
This brooch has the sheet music to Across the Universe by The Beatles, it is such an amazing tune and I love the lyrics! The sheet music is photo-etched onto sterling silver and I stitched black thread down the side to represent a man that walked past me with the biggest curliest hair I had ever seen...who also reminded me of a younger version of my dad (I saw a photo of him in his twenties...very curly hair!) Across the Universe was the song I was listening to at the time.
Polka dots, a teddy bear and ribbon.
The polka dots are round the frame of the brooch, this is one of my favourite pieces because it is just very sweet! It represents a girl in a polka dot dress carrying a teddy bear with a blue ribbon and I added a little freshwater pearl.
Two more brooches still to come!
