I've completed a new brooch, this one inspired by the tiny birds nest fungi.
A fanciful collection of bullion knots, french knots, and a few beads too.
The wool was some from a local shearer that I dyed in an autumnal mix of browns and rust. The base is a piece of poplar branch that I dried so that the bark would remain in tact. I love the bits of lichen attached to it.
A very earthy, natural piece. If you know someone who shares that unique aesthetic, this piece is now available in my shop.
Enjoy your weekend!
