|Andrea's Brooch, Cari-Jane Hakes, April 2011|
This brooch will become part of Andrea's wedding dress on the big day. It is derived from the 'Fiercely Feminine' series which has at its heart these lightly lifting leaves. They look as if a soft wind is passing underneath them. There is softness and grace and gentleness woven into this piece, 'feminine' qualities if you like. For me though, under this 'fragile' femininity lies a foundation of strength, endurance and toughness and I like to think the piece embodies all these qualities.
