Engraved Silver Scrollwork Brooch
I am continuing to design scrollwork reminiscent of the transition from the Victorian style to More naturalistic Art Nouveau. After drawing the scrolls freehand directly onto metal I use sharpened steel points to hand engrave the design. Each background dot is added one by one and each fine line is hand inscribed.
The sterling is 20 gauge and the oval is 30 x 40 mm (1 3/16 x 1 9/16). The pin finding on the back is a sturdy nickel pin and catch.
