At a glance this brooch looked like my previous brooch in http://beautyndbeads.blogspot.com/2010/03/big-and-beautiful.html maybe because of the shape of the frame. But if you look closer the filigree is different, this one was made with wire stitching. It looked more full and rich compare to ordinary filigree.
I chose copper wire to compliment the tear drop copper crystal and green fire polished crystal beads as an accent among the copper fire crystal beads. As you can see the result was beautiful.
In fact in reality, this BIG brooch (10 x 10 cm) is certainly more beautiful .....
I bought the Imperial Jasper cabochon from online store, and I bought it simply because I really liked the color. Maybe because it's pink, it looked so girly... that's why I decided to make it into a brooch for kebaya. I imagine you could wear it with white of soft pink embroidery kebaya... hmm it should be stunning... I'll bet it's a show stopper to wear !!
And since I made it with a bail, it cold be also worn with a choker and your little black dress... I think you are ready for Valentine's Day .... =))
The beads around the cabochon was rose quartz and crystals . With the size of 9,5 x 10 cm I'm sure all eyes will turn on you if you wear it.
