This weeks displacement activity - brooches (pins).
Still in the very early stages of development, but I thought I would share the progression of these pieces with you.






They're hand made Khadi paper. Painted with acrylic paints and inks......
with Iridiscent Coarse Gold acrylic paint on top......


then copper shim, wire, gold threads, beads and foil.
