Stickybeaking Robots – Handmade Brooch by NancyDee Sculptures
I created this one-of-a-kind handmade brooch, called Stickybeaking Robots, from a bent rod with screw-like threads, three end pieces from some sort of electronic equipment, and a piece of driftwood. It is 3x10cm, and I found all the bits and bobs to make it on the streets and beaches of Melbourne.
I normally create wall sculptures and 3D sculptures from the wood, metal, tiles and plastic I find on the streets. 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. Five of my pieces were on display in the 2019 Australian National Brooch Show. Now my brooches are also available through Incube8r Gallery, in both shops as well as online.
