Moth 2: Brooch
| Several things inspired my Moth brooch: the insect jewelry of the Art Nouveau period; the orthoceras fossil itself; and my desire to use basic fabrication techniques in a sophisticated design as an example for my beginning jewelry students.
Fused bezel on pierced sterling sheet with gold accents, and gold-tipped antennae.
Sterling and fine silver, 18k yellow gold, orthoceras fossil.
