I kept the background to this brooch very neutral. I added ribbons and lace in with bamboo fibre, wool roving, silk throwsters waste, wool nepps and tencel.
Here's how it looked once the I'd finished with my embellisher!
Next I embroidered onto the surface, going for opalescent shades of silver, gold, spearmint, soft pink and ice blue.
My main goal this time was to try a new shape - aiming for circular, but it was a bit complicated to work out!
The finished brooch with an idea of scale.
