Dazzling Sky Pin Brooch - Argentium Silver with Sky Blue Topaz
At last i made a pin brooch ! The enthusiasm to try this when i was ask by my student to teach her to make brooches. I try figure out what are the best brooches for her to learn (as she is at a beginner level), i came out with two designs, one is pin brooch (as per above) and the other is designing brooch using 'ready made flat back' pin (nickel silver). As for this brooch, i construct it from scratch by using hard Argenitum silver wire with Sky Blue Topaz and i hardened it more (prior stitching the stone) by tumbling it. I enjoy making this as it is very simple, elegant and unique!
