Peardrop...

Here's another Paisley brooch prototype - 'Peardrop' :


This was my first time felting with a 'silk hanky' - beautifully hand-dyed by fibrespace supplies. I added some more silk fibres and wool nepps, before embellishing with glass and metal beads, and hand embroidery.

And this time I tried having black felt on the back - feels much better this way!

Beautiful colours on this Kate and I agree that it looks more "finished" with the black felt on the back.
