Sterling Silver Brooch with Carnelian
Inspired by the tangled undergrowth in my wild garden in West Wales, I have hand pierced part of the etched design to frame the wild rose image at the back. The deep red Carnelian beads dangle from the lower edge, reminiscent of shiny rose hips that look so attractive on the autumn stems. I have added a patina to bring out the detail of the design and then polished the brooch to a light sheen
Measuring 6cm x 2.8cm at the widest points this piece has a sturdy stainless steel pin for extra security.
Presented in a lovely silver and black gift box.
