Jewelry: Brooch 001, 'Watercolor Rose' by 4pplemoon Jewelry: Brooch 001, 'Watercolor Rose' by 4pplemoon
'Even the impossible can become the possible (when it comes to love)...'

That was the thought when I tackled on with this piece. This piece was a pain in the ass because it was my first cloisonne enamel piece. At first it was going to be a multiple of flowers or a ranunclus but I decided on a rose when that thought came to me. I decided that it would be a red rose blooming through a blue rose. So there's a bit of floriography in play as well. Let's say this was my greatest challenge in jewelry making by far. In all honesty, the watercolor-y effect wasn't intentional at first, it was the result of firing in the kiln too much but it was a happy accident. It gives the brooch a dreamy-like effect. It really looks nice with through polishing and the clear nail polish finish. I am so glad this is done.

Done in copper, lead transparent enameling powder, cloisonne wire, and clear nail polish (Revlon). Taken on the IPhone 4S and edited on Photoshop CS2.

Thank you for the comment! I glad it happened although I nearly freaked out at first.
