• Brooch
    Intro to Jewelry
  • I made this brooch for my brother who, at the time, was about to join the military
     
     
  • The design was inspired by my brother's interest in the military and my own interest in aviation badges
     
     
  • An elongated rivet passes through the box, securing it to the body of the brooch and allowing rotation
     
     
  • Materials include brass, copper and spring steel wire
    Techniques learned include use of jeweler's saw, filing/ sanding, 'complex soldering' and countersunk riveting
