This statement brooch is hand stitched in a painterly style after being sketched freehand, giving it a unique and special charm.
My brooches are unique, collectible pieces of artwork that represent and reflect my personality. You can wear them as a brooch, a lapel pin, a pin for a scarf or tie, on a hat, a head scarf. And when not in use they double up as a picture you can display on your wall, mantel, dressing table. They are great conversation starters and really create a statement anywhere you display them.
This Holly GoLightly brooch is a one-off. The base fabric is cotton and I have stitched with cotton, linen, acrylic, rayon, wool and silk threads. Dimensions: 8cm x 6cm.
The silver setting is handmade by a jeweller and created to match and fit perfectly with the artwork. It is a punched hole setting made from 925 sterling silver with hanging loop brooch pin.
I no longer do commissions on stitched work. There is only one Holly brooch available.
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.
