I created this one-of-a-kind handmade brooch from a small tile and three tiny pieces of metal. All the bits and bobs that I used to make it were found during my daily walks. This tiny brooch – only 3x2cm – reminded me of a minimalist piece of abstract art; thus the name.
I normally create larger wall sculptures and 3D sculptures from the wood, metal and tiles I find on the streets of Melbourne. However, through Instagram I met handmade jewellery designer Lynn Powers from New Orleans. She encouraged me to try making jewellery from the objects I found on the street, but I never had.
Then I saw that the Contemporary Art Society of Victoria was holding its annual brooch exhibition, so I entered–and found that making brooches is great fun. Several of my pieces were on display in the 2019 Australian National Brooch Show and in the 2020 Wearable Art exhibition at The Old Auction House in Kyneton. Others will be featured in 2021 at an exhibition during Melbourne Design Week in March.
My brooches are available through Incube8r Gallery, in the shops in Fitzroy and Prahran, as well as online. Be sure and check my Instagram account for my brooches, https://www.instagram.com/nancydeebrooches/.
