Little lime felt brooch.
This little lime felt brooch is handmade in merino or bergschaf wool with pearl bead decoration.
The pearl beads have been collected from a deconstructed necklace (not real pearls!) and the centre is made from a recycled/crushed coffee 'pod', giving me an opportunity to make interesting use of a product that would usually be thrown away. The pods, being crumpled, give a faceted shine to the centre adding interest and this little brooch. Actually, recycling the pods is rather more time consuming than I'd anticipated, so I don't think there will be as many of these in the pipeline as I'd first hoped! This is certainly a piece of quirky jewellery that's also a talking point!
To be fair, I believe these coffee pods are recycled by the manufacturers if the buyer takes them to a recycling centre, but I wonder how many do. So my little felt brooches are just a (very) small contribution to lessening the rubbish mountain!
This brooch measures approximately 4.5cms diameter - meaurements for others will vary slightly, due to the variations natural to working with felt.
