Stars In Our Eyes Brooch
This brooch was inspired by my family's many stargazing trips. Over the last year, we needed to find an activity that was safe, could be done while social distancing and got us out of the house. We started taking a series of mini road trips and exploring places we hadn't visited before in our own province.
We all love watching the stars and all the other wonders the beautiful prairie skies have to offer.
This brooch was made by taking a photo of the Milky Way (scaled down to size) and gluing it to Sterling silver sheet. The basic shape was then cut out and textured. The "stars" were created using a few different texturing techniques. Depth and colour were added with rose gold balls and two 4mm cubic zirconia then the whole piece was given a patina.
