Stitched Limpet Brooch #31


Each individual limpet shell brooch is meticulously hand stitched using a cotton/silk mix thread and a great deal of patience. Alice uses a needle-weaving technique, building up a constructed textile surface that sits within the incomplete shell. Each one is unique, just as each shell on the beach is an individual.

The brooch pin has a revolver safety catch and is hand stitched to the back of the stitched shell.

The brooch measures approximately 4.5 cm x 5 cm x 1.5 cm with a 2.5 cm brooch pin on the back.
