Day 11 : Work 11. The United States of three structures. One Brooch

There are 3 structures combined in this work and it will be a brooch. I have made many brooches using different colours of layers in one work. Sometimes they are intended to illustrate a certain thing like honeycomb or tell a certain story for my identity. However, sometimes I just made some brooches as I love the colour combination on my structure I created.

Brooches can be a good tool to show your art as a jewellery artist and a strong statement on the body.

With this new work I mainly focused on the structures and the space it can create in between. Also I can say what kind of surface treatment can be done for mild steel. Took long time to plan it and make it and definitely it is not a day of work at all. Not finished yet!!
