One-Of-A-Kind Mixed Metals Brooch by Linda Summers

The design of this unusual brooch is reminiscent of tribal adornments with different textures, patterns, and even color of the metals. It houses old parts that may have belonged to some other use, but all are either old, tribal, or just old. It is also a dimensional piece with the elements along the centerline raised from the back piece. Stones and beads hang from the middle engraved circle. There are blue old beads from Africa, some brass beads from the Middle East, and a center textured oval that was made for this piece. The other parts about the large circle are a silver coin and another engraved metal with an ornate old bead that I don’t know the provenance of. Most of the construction is riveted with some soldered parts. The back has a simple hand-crafted sterling pin. The brooch is roughly 2” X 2” without the dangles. This would look great for fall and winter on dark coats or sweaters.
