This past weekend at SOFA:NY, my new Esprit Brooches were exhibited for the first time on maple stands.  Brooch forms have always been my favorite.  I approach them as small scale sculpture.  After making these larger ruffle brooches I felt they should be on display when not in use. I love that the stand allows the brooch to float in space.

Also on view at Snyderman-Works Gallery were several of these new hole punch brooches by Ford/Forlano.
Read what they have to say about technique here and about the concept here.
