Lucy is one to adore. She is sweet and dazzling all in one. It’s hard not to give this piece to my daughter. She looks darling with it entangled in her red locks!

This dogwood flower is hand painted enamel over metal. To make an enamel piece of jewelry an artist must first form a metal shape. In this case it is a flower. The gold and enamel is then painted onto the piece. Enamel glaze or liquid glass must be fired in a kiln at a very high temperature. You can see brush strokes at the center of this flower.

This piece was discovered in a box of random trinkets. Without a pin or clasp and the center of the flower was missing. For this reason I cannot tell if it was a brooch or button. Although, I have seen this flower as a brooch and am fairly certain that it was. Lucy has 5 gold wires that gracefully intertwine. Each has its own design ranging from gold, pearl and amber seed beads. Freshwater baroque rice pearl beads in a golden bronze tone add texture throughout this piece and create a lovely center for the flower. Two ½ inch vintage rhinestone crystal buttons add amazing sparkle. This piece can be worn freely throughout the hair or as a headband. The design allows the wire to take on a random free flowing look. Hand twisted wire loops at both ends help for pinning or tying into place. Lucy is very lightweight and flexible.
