This brooch took our breath away. The hand-painted scene (on ceramic and edged in gold) captivates with soft hues, billowy skies, and the suggestion of warmth in palm trees and lush landscape. Whether it's a low-country marsh, a brackish glade in south Florida, a desert oasis, or an exotic watering hole's edge, it is the place of beauty and subtle serenity; a place you visited once in a daydream. Strands of textural teal African glass beads provide the perfect setting for the brooch (which is detachable, so you'll have some serious versatility in this design) with hints of golden in brass beads throughout. An etched and gilt copper toggle brings the look together at 18.5" in length.
