Hey, everyone... it's been a long time since my last project post (about 9 months)... I've been busy I guess!  Anyway, here's a brooch I just made.  It's a custom piece for a friend of a friend.  If you have any questions about the techniques I used, please let me know.

That's lovely! Did you create the shape yourself or mold it off something else?

Thanks. Smiley

I made the general form from a stamp that I carved myself out of soft linoleum and then I added detail and the symbol in the centre directly to the clay.
