By popular request....


here is the first of my new bird brooches. It was made by rolling antique embroidery into porcelain and then was cut out by hand, fired and glazed with cobalt blue. I was aiming for a piece that was feminine, but would be easy to wear and look good with jeans. I love porcelain! It picks up even the most delicate textures. The embroidery I used came from a piece stitched by my great aunt who died before I was born.... I hope she'd have liked this little bird.
