Jamie, Brief a wedding gift for a Badger loving bride.
For this fun commission we were asked to make a brooch in the form of a badger to be given as a wedding gift. After viewing a number of sketches the client went for this design which was hand carved from wax then cast in silver. The silver was oxidised (a process that turns silver black) then lightly polished so that the recessed areas remained dark to add definition.
The brooch is quite heavy so also had a safety chain attached.
