Here is an original thread wrapped brooch in red and wine with gold highlights. It is made using the tradtional 'Death's Head' technique of thread wrapping. It also has a bronze brooch back stitched securely into place.

My thread wrapped brooches are created using age old passementerie (textile trimmings) techniques used for creating buttons on clothing. Brightly coloured, quality cotton threads are wrapped around a heavy card disc to produce elegant patterns. A felt patch is secured over the back with a brooch pin to produce an unusual brooch with a modern twist.

Each brooch is 25mm wide (1 inch) and comes in a small black velvet bag.
