To celebrate my latest exhibition "The Ritual of Everyday" I will be regularly posting a piece of handmade jewellery from the exhibition.  (This is all in the hope that I will be inspired to blog a little more regularly!)

This particular design is a medallion brooch, handmade from many recycled materials.  It is selling for $75AU and the exhibition catalogue description is as follows:

Recycled plastic bottle lid, recycled rubber disc, recycled wooden disc (salvaged from my Grandfather’s wood turning workshop), plaster fish shapes hand cast from plastic soy sauce bottles and sealed with clear acrylic sealer, cotton/poly thread hand twisted into rope, wooden bead hand dyed, cotton/poly thread handmade pompom, glue, cotton/poly thread, recycled grosgrain ribbon, pure wool felt locally hand dyed, metal brooch pin.
