Today I want to show you two brooches I created during the christmas holiday. The first one I created for the give-away of Soul Food. The chosen symbol was the ropeladder. The meaning of the ropeladder is to help and remind us to climb up again. It took me some time to think of an object that would fit this symbol and the story of this person. I made it with the darkest blue felt, which stands for growth and pink, which stands for love.
The brooche is made in three layers because I wanted to put an extra reminder for the love of life in it. Now the story gets a little bit sad. Although she has no idea what I made for her she decided not to accept my gift. So this brooche is like a baby who awaits to be adopted.
The second brooche I made for myself as small reminder of my Soul Food project. So I felted three layers in the Soul Food colours and used the darkest blue felt for the back. I hope your not sick of me babbeling on about Soul Food, that project had such a large impact on me last year that it is hard not to think about it anymore.
This leaves me to wish you a day filled with wonder. Have a great day.
