too many brooches

Melissa works in patterns. Sometimes they linger, popping up again in other pieces. Infrequently they get retired. This one has served well, so it has been put out to pasture.

not enough chest…

The piece that completes the pattern. The bride was given this one too. As I worked on the first brooch, I slowly planned what to do with all the other pieces from the pattern. As I neared completion it didn’t seem right to share such a big part of the pattern with anyone else. The bride got the last work, and the pattern is now retired.
