You have come to the shore. There are no instructions.

Denise Levertov

edition: one-of-a-kind
made of
: silver, copper, vintage tin cocktail tray fragment, mother-of-pearl, vitreous enamel, iron oxide transfer
measurements: The brooch measures 1 and 7/8ths inches long and is almost 1 and 7/8ths inches high.
process: The enameling process for making this brooch is labor-intensive. It involves laying layers of finely-ground glass onto the copper forms and firing them multiple times at very high temperatures in a kiln. Lots of protective gear involved at every step. Then I painstakingly gather, cut and arrange fragments of imagery from different eras in history and fuse them into the enamel to tell the stories we may have forgotten.
