The decorations were punched out of a felt cloth I made the day before.
I do need to improve my wire wrapping skills! Wink =^..^=

Your latest experiments remind of an abstracted petri dish - am I onto something here?  Wink They look fantastic btw. I love the mix of hard and soft materials!

You said on your post of the other brooch that you had to work on your wire wrapping...I don't know why, your wrapping looks awesome!  (I'm jealous!)

Thank you!!!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Wire wrapping - on the burnt sienna wire you can see spaces between some of the coils which shouldn't be there. Funny thing is, the finer wire is easier to wrap than the thicker gauge wire, but it is easier to get that tight wrap with the thicker gauge.

I need to get back to a bobbin necklace, but I have been enjoying these brooches. Sketched out several more variations in construction last night. Will see what wins out when I get to my craft room - bobbins or brooches!! Wink =^..^=
