New Vintage Inspired Brooches

Here's a little peep at my new vintage inspired brooches. They are made on upcycled draughts (checkers) pieces. Each one is painted with acrylic colours and collaged, resin has been used to give each piece a lovely glass like finish. Some have Swarovski crystals set in the resin.












I'll put a note on the blog when they are for sale in the shop. I'm not quite ready - these haven't even got their brooch pins attached! I've designed the packaging, I'm just waiting for that to come back from the printers.
I'd love to know what you think of them:)
There will be a little competition soon to win a brooch of your choice, xx

Oh, wow! I love those! I'll have to forward my friend Amy, she loves vintage imagery. Great idea using draughts.
