Mr Badger

For this fun commission we were asked to make a brooch in the form of a badger to be given as a wedding gift from a father to his daughter on her wedding day. 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 only the recessed areas remained dark adding definition to the design.
The solid silver brooch is quite heavy so a safety chain was also attached.
