Sterling silver

30 x 22 mm


I made this adorable hippo brooch for my sister-in-law, who is expecting their first child. I am sure they will be able to use it as a baby brooch or a decoration for a blanket or pram, or however they decide. I though that this little brooch can be a nice keepsake for the child one day.

The pattern was pierced from sterling silver plate. A simple pin was made from thin sterling silver wire and soldered onto the back of the brooch. The frosted look on the backplate was created with a diamond burr. I think this is a very pretty surface finish and will definitely use it again in the future.
