Steamy Wonderland Brooch


This brooch was made specially for  a little show/contest of the SteamTeam.
 The piece is inspired by characters/elements from "Alice in Wonderland", so with some imagination you can recognise the rabbit, the tophat, the teapot of the tea-party and the water pipe with smoke curling out.
(Well, I said with some imagination   :))

This is one of the rare times I use copper in my jewellery, but I figured the piece needed the warm red-brownish colour, and I was glad with the result. It makes the piece look a bit old or even worn out, but it fits perfectly.
The silver is partly oxidated to give it more depth and of course the antique look to go with the copper.
