Here is our entry – Bh©Brooch#7 OxidisedSilver StainlessSteel:

As usual the digital realisation is by © Jeweller to the Lost – Malcolm Enright and the beautiful work by Barbara and Juan-luis Gonzalez.

The next generation of this etched and studio constructed work work is being prepared right now for our upcoming show at ‘adayonearth’ August 2008. This body of work was featured in NYC at Aaron Faber Gallery & SOFA in 2006. A brooch also featured in the 2007 touring show entitled ‘bangles, baubles & beads’, with a review in the recent issue of the USA Metalsmith Magazine.
