Feel a little exotic with this gorgeous silver brooch. Inspired by the peacock and resembling the tail feather of an imaginary exotic bird, this brooch really is something special.
A 10mm cherry-red carnelian cabochon set in a burnished silver bezel, makes this really eye-catching.
Your brooch has been hand cut from a sheet of sterling silver. The spaces between the inner and outer parts lend the the brooch a light, feather-like look while keeping a substantial weight.
Two different textures have been been achieved through careful hammering of the outer and inner parts, and further colour and contrast have been added to the silver by patination and subsequent polishing to highlight selected areas.
A double pin (running lengthwise) made from high quality stainless steel, and a double hook catch makes this brooch very secure and able to be worn at a variety of angles without tipping forward.
Approx. dimensions: Length - 65mm; Width: 35mm

I try to represent my pieces as accurately as possible but being handmade, none are identical and you may occasionally see "the hand of the maker" - minor flaws and tool marks which can add to the charm of a piece and distinguish it from a mass-produced product.
There may be minor variations in shapes, sizes and finishes, adding individuality to the piece. Gemstones may vary in exact colour and (where appropriate) inclusions, marbling etc, but where a pair is used (for example in stud earrings), I try to match them as closely as possible.
Packaging may vary slightly from that shown.
