This brooch was made from spalted wood found in an old river bed about 10km from the village of Cádiar.
It was hand carved into a pretty pear shape and then sanded smooth before being painted with acrylics. It was then coated with several layers of acrylic varnish for protection.
It has 3cm silver plated brooch backing attached with epoxy resin adhesive, and this is covered with a pretty green and silver bias binding.
It is part of the Wooden Geometric collection and was inspired by living in the Alpujarra de la Sierra, an area nestled in between the Sierra Nevada and the Mediterranean.
The design is based on geometric patterns used in Moorish architecture and hints at the splendour of such buildings as the Alhambra palace (1338-1390) in Granada, Andalucia.
It would compliment any outfit and looks stunning on strong bold colours.
