Weekend Eye Candy - Brooch a Week 52/1 Edition

What I love about challenges is the way they allow for experimentation and exploration. What I love about these brooches is the way each artist used found objects to create a piece of jewelry that is ephemeral, thought provoking, and that could certainly be used as a study for a metallic version.

These were all made by members of the Brooch a Day group. With 365 pins to make over the next year, using precious materials for each offering would not only be expensive, but time consuming. Using disposable materials gave each artist the freedom to experiment and just have fun.
