Like having two pieces of jewelry…

This mixed media one-of-a-kind reversible brooch gives a lot of fashion mileage!   It is titled “Past time”.  One side of this hammer textured brooch features a scene depicting Egyptian women.  Turn the brooch  over and the reverse side features an epoxy resin clay “ancient column”.   The bronze fibula clasp gives functionality allowing it to be worn on either side.  I’ve added sterling silver accents and patinaed the brass body of the brooch imparting colors that contrast well with the rich golden bronze of the clasp.  Creating this piece was a joy! I made a stockpile of several epoxy resin clay focal pieces so  I’ll definitely be making more of these double-sided brooches – perhaps a few pendants too!
