A shimmering brooch, with the most simple of scenes - stripes of blue sky, blue sea and yellow sand. This brooch is part of the Horizon collection inspired by a lockdown longing for the sea, and scenes like this.
The little world captured within is created from an original photograph of a scene taken on a sunny, clear day on the south coast, the crispness of the horizon giving a pleasing graphic quality to the image.
To create the brooch, the image is printed onto a transparency which set under a piece of solid, domed glass and then into sterling silver. The silver shines through the photograph giving a shimmer which changes the colours of the scene as the light hits it, much as the sea would if you were really there.
The brooch fastens with a simple sterling silver pin and C shape clasp.
The brooch is simply presented in a black foiled gift box with polishing cloth, care instructions and information card.
