A close-up of the dual brooch I made on suggestion/loose commission for :iconophanimgothique: . She asked for a dual brooch with large bronze cabs and I believe pearl chain as well. The pendant features a small blossom of Everlasting Pea, which is such a beautiful flower- it ranges from pure white (as shown) to bright fuchsia when fresh, but it dries to a lovely pale bluish-lavender shade. I did a bit of surgery on this one, removing the seedpod and twisting the outer petals just so to make it lay flatter, but it also gave it a silhouette that reminds me of a bonnet, which I thought would be perfect for a milliner. The pendant is also backed by a pieces of antique newspaper; I found this in a drawer in an antique vanity over the summer, and I only have two small pieces of it, so once it's gone, it's gone, which makes this pendant all the more special and unique. It is connected with a strand of pearls and bronze metal chain to a dark brown rose brooch on the other side.

This is a one-of-a-kind item, as said, that was made on Carolyn's suggestion, so if she does not want to buy it, I'll probably be keeping it for myself. However, if you would like to see other similar items, my shop is here: [link]
