Stitched Limpet Brooch #38
£60.00 / Sold Out
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 wool felt and secured to the back of the stitched shell.
The brooch measures approximately 4 cm x 3.5 cm x 1.5 cm with a 3 cm brooch pin on the back.

Artists post work for sale under £200 and when they reach £1000 worth of sales through the scheme they pledge to spend £200 on another artist's work.
