Two New Brooches

Some vintage fun was had in the making of these brooches. Components from old pieces of jewellery, an unused cameo from the 50's and crystal or glass beads come together to make a unique new item. The button, (which I cut the shank from) is old Norwegian. The rhinestone circular bead is from a hatpin that belonged to my grandmother.

The Wattle Tree

In contrast to the previous landscape painting, this one is only 6" x 6" square (15cm).
At that time, my life became busy with a second family, and small versions of favourite themes, became the paintings of the day. Oil on canvas over board.
