Brooches. Better late than never.

Still super busy round here.

Here are my brooches from the annual RMIT fashion and textiles show this year titled “Graphica”

These brooches are a new trial of mixing a bit of everything.

Techniques: Sashiko embroidery, gold & silversmithing

Materials: cotton thread, hand-dyed cotton and silk, sterling silver, enamel

In these brooches I aim to combine the Japanese embroidery technique Sashiko, meaning “little stabs”, on stunning hand-dyed textiles with jewellery making techniques such as enamelling to create wearable works of art
