My First Brooch

My First Brooch
Originally uploaded by sarawestermark
Kind of sounds silly, but I was really intimidated to do a brooch. I think its because in order to have a sturdy back you can't use sterling wire to make the "pin" stick part. I have many sketches for brooch/pendant combination pieces, so I'm excited that I've crossed over the threshold. Now everything my be brooches!

Thanks to Andy Cooperman for some tricks for pin backs that he shared with me.
