Before I do some more reading, I'll update you on my progress with brooch-making.
Like most, I tend to start small and grow adventurous as I grasp the concepts clearly.
|Mrs. Daisy: Not the first I've made, but among the simplest. The wreath and rhinestone on top are off center on purpose though. Experimenting with Asymmetrical Designs|
|Rubicante: Traditional brooch shape, but composition inspired by a Final Fantasy Boss|
Usually, I'll start tossing in a few strange or unconventional elements that are not so abstract, just to have fun, play and see how it makes me feel.
|Flapper Princess: Fun and Flippant.|
|A Real Cougar: Brought to you by the letter L, a strange sense of humor and, "MOOOOORE!"|
