This steampunk brooch, has been created with mica powder and resin. The focal point is a colour shifting gem, which changes from green to purple to blue as it catches the light - back filled with black resin. With antique metal tones used for the filigree surround, and accented with beautiful purple mica mini ‘stones’.
The brooch measures 4.5cm point to point, and is backed with a secure pin, to ensure safe wearing. This brooch would make the perfect addition to any coat, scarf, or hat, or cosplay outfit, with it’s Victorian feel.
Why I work with Resin
Resin is an amazingly versatile medium to work with. It can be used to coat artwork, encase botanicals and other memorial items, or coloured to make a beautiful piece where it is the focus of the piece itself.
As well as working with steampunk/gothic/fantasy themes, I find great satisfaction in drying and using botanicals in my work. Taking inspiration from everywhere in order to make gifts, I hope my creations put smiles on the faces of both those gifting and receiving my work.
Every item is intended to be unique, unless a bespoke order of multiples are requested. One off designs can be made for you, including gifts, keepsakes, and memorial pieces, drop me a message here to discuss.
As well as this steampunk inspired brooch, you can find other examples of my work, and keep up to date with my projects on my social media pages on facebook, instagram, and twitter. These include clocks, decorated wooden boxes, earrings and pendants, skull, paw print and letter keyrings.
