Camera : Canon EOS 550D
Hand-made and pic taken in my studio (Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa)

A shard of glass from a broken lampshade, wrapped in copper foil to enable soldering, and silver wire added to form a wire mesh. First I attached a thick copper wire circle and then wove the thinner silver wire around and through it to form the mesh. A coat of black patina was added and buffed to give a vintage look.

By changing the angle at which you pin the brooch, you can get quite a few different looks
