Pink Optic Fiber Turquoise Brooch with Felt

Pink Optic Fiber Turquoise Brooch with Felt

This work incorporates optic fibers with a pink LED. The LED is hidden inside the felt on the back and is powered by a small  3V coin-type flat battery.

The beautiful, multicolored piece of turquoise (purchased from Heart Of Stone Studios) (size 42.5mm x 33.5mm) comes from right over the Tibetan border in China. It is the same source of turquoise that the Tibetans have used and worn for centuries.

I have also used oxidised copper, UV resin, vintage shards of pink glass, brass eyelets, merino wool (needle felted), beads, crochet thread, conductive thread, bamboo, bone & craft wire.

The finished size of the piece (without the 3 dangly bits) is approx:

10cm long x 8cm wide
