Horses and Other Signs

6 Dec 2018
These brooches were born in the framework of the SYMBOLS series that explored the perceptions and understanding of universal symbolic terminology.
Inspiration for this collection stemmed from my re-interpretation of the Chinese horoscope signs.

As ever, I loved playing not only with the shapes but also with the colours.

These particular brooches are formed in a mechanical press with the help of hand-made dies that I created specifically for this project. Consequently, they are hand-pierced, repousséd and cold-enameled. Each and every one is an original, slightly different and unique.
