Inspiration - Brooches

I am currently creating a range of cute brooches for my Rescued by Bowerbird label. I love brooches and usually wear one most days to spice up an outfit. Currently I'm inspired by fabric flora. Having bought a couple of beautiful silk flower brooches from at the Young Blood Designers Market at the Powerhouse Museum last month I decided to turn my hand to the art of the fabric flower. The first couple of attempt were a bit sad I have to say...but practise makes perfect! The rose brooch on the left is made of silk organza and small feathers I bought in a craft shop on the south coast.
