Titled “Happiness This Way” includes an arrow pointing toward happiness, This sterling silver brooch is made of many pieces of silver fused together with a torch at 1600 degrees.
Creating each piece is always an adventure, because although I have a lot of control and experience, silver sometimes melts in unexpected ways, making each piece one of a kind. An amethyst cabochon is bezel set into the piece. Swarovski crystal and Paua shells from New Zealand, strengthened with cold pour enamel on the back are suspended from colored jump rings.
My signature, date, and title are engraved on the back. 1.5″ by 3″ in size. Made with a standard mechanical pin back.
It is one of a kind and comes with a handmade pouch to keep it in.
Handmade in the USA, signed, dated and copyrighted by Laura Wilson.
