I had been restoning for a while before I thought to document the process in video form. This brooch seemed like a good candidate for a big reveal since it was going to have new color.
As you can see, despite the good construction this brooch has a cheaply made one piece pinback added. These pieces are always a mystery. One wonders why, with all the solder that created it, they chose not to solder a separate hinge and catch.
My approach was an "end of the day" style piece featuring lots of related colors set at random. I incorporated sapphire and Montana blue, antique pink, light rose and rose, and light and standard amethyst.
