Parrotfish, Seed Bead Embroidered Fish Brooch-Pin-Pendant, Vivid Tropical Greens, Blues, Yellow, Purple

The show-stopping parrotfish actually live in the waters of the Florida Keys. I thought they looked gorgeous enough for jewelry so I made a wearable art brooch. I interpreted the brooch in tiny Czech and Japanese Number 11 seed beads. The art to wear colors include luminous greens, blues, yellow, purple and a sprinkling of red.

Working under magnification, I sewed the beads one at a time to layers of nonwoven material. I finished the brooch’s edge with twin rows of Number 11 beads. See https://www.etsy.com/shop/LisaPierceJewelry/about/

For the back, I used a pale cream felt. The back’s finding has both a pin with a safety catch and double loops. You could attach the brooch to a necklace, a metal collar, a wire band, a chain or a ribbon for a distinctive necklace. Alternatively, you could pin the brooch to a jacket or a sweater or a clutch bag.

The intricate and meticulous workmanship will dazzle you. The brooch measures about 4 1/4 inches across or approximately 108 mm.

Inspirations from the Florida Keys made their way into many pieces in my collection. Here are a few other Keys pieces, but you will find many more in my shop.

When you buy a piece from my collection, I will sign and date your purchase.

A shipping point to remember: insurance and U.S. Priority Mail always part of the shipping cost.
