Description

I've created this piece for the EBW Team's Challenge "Spring Around the Corner". Here in North Carolina spring is spectacular and it has arrived! The dogwoods and azaleas are just about to pop! But I still miss the lilac season back in my hometown of Rochester New York, where spring truly began in May with the Lilac Festival at Highland Park. Lilacs in amazing variety bloom abundantly on a lush hillside and the fragrance is on the breeze blocks away. Picture #2 is taken with a blossom from my "Rochester" white lilac tree that just bloomed this week.

This lovely large Brooch is really more of a Corsage...A Broosage! It starts with a seed bead encrusted base in deep lilac and color lined green size 11 beads with a matte brown stem. On top of the embroidery, I've created a bouquet of tiny little lilac florets made from tiny little size 15 seed beads in a luster lilac with an amber crystal at the center of each. I've also included some beautiful gold luster lilac czech glass flowers anchored by tiny pearl yellow seed beads. The leaves are embellished with a handful of rainbow peridot crystal "dewdrops" for some sparkle. The finishing touch is a couple of irridescent pink glass butterflies. The brooch is carefully edged in seed beads, backed in a lilac tie-died felt and has a 1.5" gold plated pinback. The Broosage is 5" long and 3.5" across the widest part.

What a beautiful way to celebrate the spring and what a wonderful Mother's Day gift this would make!
