When I made my silver brooch I couldn’t not make a gold one!!! I mean logic dictated that I should !!:D
I think one of my main issues is that I want to use every single type of bead that I have in every piece that I do, I just can’t help it .I can’t seem to be able edit myself sometimes so I did go a little bit crazy wanting to really use these 6mm pyrite beads that I had gotten that I think are just the bomb but firstly I really did not think that 6mm would be that huge (trust me these are) and secondly they are quite heavy.
I sewed them on but they just didn’t work. So I just had to take them off.
I played around with some other beads I think I just thought I had to keep adding but nothing worked so I conceded to leaving the piece be after the rows of pearls. Which is a good thing .if I am unable to edit myself then I am glad that my limited variety of beads did the editing for me.
The brooch is very simple. It’s a gold glitter resin cabochon, set in a white and gold bezel followed by two rows of pearls.
I did a sunshine edge around the piece just in case I wanted to add an edging or hang some fringes from the piece but I haven’t gotten around to doing that. I might do a white and gold picot edge just to add a bit of golden accent to the edge to mirror what is going on in the middle, if I do I will update this post with new pictures. But for now I hope you can enjoy this piece.
