This necklace was inspired by a found object challenge from Erin of Treasures Found. The challenge for this week was "Grandma's Jewelry Box" ~ to make something new out of an old treaure in your jewelry box (or someone else's!).
This brooch belonged to my grandma. I think it's just beautiful. I keep it in a dish on my dresser and usually wear it during the Christmas season because of it's beautiful red color and shape.
I used assorted gold beads, Czech Fire Polished beads and some small Swarovki crystals in red, and gold wire. I attached the brooch with a jumpring without harming the original pin back. What a fun challenge!
