Drawing Brooches...

I did a few drawings.  Then I cut out some sheet metal and soldered a pin-back on.  Once I had the base of the brooches ready, I transferred the drawings onto the pieces with liquid polymer clay.  I then covered everything with a coat of resin.  When the resin had cured fully, I gave the brooches a good sanding and did a little bit of staining with alcohol inks.

These are early prototypes.  I have more ideas of how to incorporate my drawings into my jewelry and hope to do so in the future.
