Layered Brooch Series

I designed and made this brooch series for my exhibition the ‘Loved Ones’. During my BA, I got completely engrossed in a brief called ‘Cold Fixing’ i.e., joining metals without the use of solder. The little pictures are made from the layering of hand pierced flat plates, held in place by rivets. Oxidised silver with hand placed gold leaf.
