Designing this contemporary brooch for my client’s wedding anniversary was really exciting.
She wanted a large sculptural and versatile design, with movement and her favourite colours.
After researching Hindu wedding traditions, the design she chose was inspired by the identical flower garlands worn by the bride and groom at their wedding.
Technically challenging to make, this brooch includes abstract cloisonné enamel, hand made chain and filigree curving in 3 dimensions to add a sense of volume. The brooch can be pinned at different angles to change the look.
