My first attempt at Art Deco and it definitely won’t be my last as I just love this! This brooch is inspired from 1920’2 Art Deco designs and is made from a central faceted rectangle Onyx cabochon with Swarovski crystal baguette stones, crystal rondelles and Swarovski Black and crystal rhinestone chain. Crystals are surrounded by tiny size 15 and size 11 silver seed beads with a black seed bead edge.
This could easily be made into a hair slide or with different coloured crystals so I am happy to accept a custom order for this item but please allow 2 weeks for making.
Brooch measures 7cms X 4cms (2 & 3/4 X 1 & 1/2 inches). Brooch is backed in black ultra suede.
