Trinidad Inspired Brooch

I made a neckpiece for this gentleman’s wife back in Sept, which she loved and he wanted a brooch to celebrate a significant birthday along a similar theme. Originally from Trinidad, he wanted the brooch to celebrate the flora and fauna native to the island. I chose the ‘Pink Flamingo’ flower (central to the piece) and the ‘Yellow Eyed Grass’, a delicate, meadow like flower. I set vibrant stones of Tourmaline, Ruby, Garnet and Carnelian amongst the silver filigree work, to hint at the tropical pallet.
