Auction 2011

For this year's Penland Benefit Auction I made a bow cluster brooch. I was thinking about several things when I made it--my grandmother and the enameled locket she gave me, playing with the tassels that held back the curtains in the living room when I was a kid, and a Cartier shoulder brooch I saw during a trip to San Francisco. I layered more colors on this piece - light blue, yellow, white, hot pink and red - and included two tassels. In addition, the chain can be taken off and worn separately as a necklace.

Thanks for reading.
