This is a brooch I completed recently as a special one off commission.
The customer requested a piece which incorporated the images of her grand children into a brooch.
Rather daunted by the request initially I carefully saw-pierced out the designs of the children in silhouette from silver. These were then soldered onto a brass background & the whole piece was then oxidised.
I have had feedback from the customer who was thrilled with the result!

It was Roy Dutton's birthday on Monday so I made him one of my mobiles for a prezzie. He's made from copper, brass & silver which has been given a bronzed finish. He measures approx. 20cm tall.
I used to make lots of these for galleries a few years ago...including gardeners, jesters, fairy godmothers, shoppers, mermaids etc. I'll dig out some photos to show you....
I enjoyed making Mr Fisherman with his very big fish!!
