My piece “Into the woods” was inspired by my found object, a squirrel jaw bone. When designing this piece i agonized over what my found object should be, I wanted it truly be “found” but finding a piece proved difficult. I finally came across the jaw bone in a wooded area on my parents property The bone gave the piece a mysterious feel but I wanted it to also have a sense of exploration and discovery. The hidden component to my brooch is a spinning wheel. While out exploring ask it what direction you should go and give it a whirl.
