From The Deep brooches are inspired by the mysteries of the deep sea... it's said that 95% of the ocean floor still hasn’t been explored.
The copper used to make the brooches is taken from an antique water tank. The patina has been developing for over 60 years and the untouched conditions make a beautiful deep green colour which is preserved by a lacquer.
Libby's designs challenge our perceptions of preciousness, questioning how we value materials. Although the main material isn’t deemed valuable, the conditions and history of the copper are precious.
Please note each brooch will be a one off and so colours may vary slightly.
These brooches are made from patina copper, 925 silver and a 0.8 stainless steel pin. They measure 45mm long, 38mm wide and 5m deep.

Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
