I've been playing with a new concept for brooches and I'm hooked.
The hubby and I have been making wood buttons and I noticed that some of the birch pieces we had cut had decayed between the bark and the wood, just enough that I was able to pop off the outer ring of bark. I took these rings, sanded them and waxed them, then fitted them with a piece of wool felt that I made by wet-felting. Some I've sewn little details in, others I've left alone.
I'll be putting these in my Etsy shop sometime later today.
