Continuing with the making I developed my ideas into thinking about a usable brooch for someone who is learning to write cursive. I thought about a quill and ink (which i will develop later) but decided on a interchangeable slot with a blackboard and chalk so you can write then wipe! Also this means pictures, photos and other lovely things can be put into your brooch which is revealed when you open the door. I used a new process with ‘Image transfer solution’ to apply the image of the professor looking chap which is from an 1900’s postcard I adore and a copper nitrate patina which gives the beautiful turquoise colour and a vintage look. A quirky piece of jewellery which comes alive with interaction and discussion giving me, the Maker a relationship with both the Wearer and Viewer.
