About this project

This year (2016) I have set myself a project to make one brooch a month. They are to be quite substantial statement pieces. I choose a theme, artist or image to respond to, sketch, experiment and work on my ideas, ending with a finished brooch at the end of the month. I am sharing sneak peaks on social media during the month and then posting the final piece at the end of the month. This project is running alongside my normal making and I look forward to seeing where it takes me.
