A very elegant brooch, perfect it its simplicity...

***************************
With the sunset sharpness was lost, and like mist rising, quiet rose, quiet spread, the wind settled; loosely the world shook itself down to sleep…
To the Lighthouse – Virginia Woolf
****************************

Like sea foam on a pebble, this classic and romantic brooch is small enough to be worn on a vest or light top but eye-catching enough to adorn your coat collar.

As I often do, I started off by wet-felting a little undyed grey merino wool and onto that hand-stitched some beautifully intricate Japanese Mokubo lace - other than tidying up the back with some lovely blue and white striped cotton – that’s it! Gorgeous simplicity.

**Vital statistics:
To the Lighthouse brooch is approx. 3cm/1 ¼ inches in diameter and 2cm or ¾ inch thick at its widest point.
It has a pin back and is finished with a striped blue and white cotton fabric backing - which of course no one else will see, but you’ll be happy in the knowledge that your brooch is well finished.

**This brooch is ready to ship.
** Because I know this will be a treat - either for yourself of some else - it comes wrapped as a treat in a lovely kraft paper box with a drawing of the brooch on the front and the brooch quote/story and care instructions inside
