Fruit brooch, sterling silver multistone brooch “tutti frutti”.
A handmade fruit brooch decorated with 8 GENUINE gemstones: 2 Russian amazonite leaves (10×4 mm), 1 Russian charoite (8 mm), 2 chalcedony/carnelian from India (10 mm), 1 tigers eye (12×6 mm), 1 hawks eye (3×5 mm), and a chunk of ruby crystal (4 mm).
The fruit brooch has been inspired by the gemstones, their color and shape. The tigers eye for a pear, chalcedony – peach, carnelian – apple (or peach), hawks eye – figue, ruby – raspberry (or strawberry) and purple charoite – for a plum. Togther a cheerful tutti frutti combo, a nice summer gift, especially for someone born in August or September.
The stones have been shaped by me and cut just a bit to resemble the fruit shape.
The fruit basket has been weaved by hand from 22 g sterling wire.
The pin and clasp are made of sterling silver.
The piece is about 4×4,5 cm (1,6×1,8 inches) big. It is quite heavy piece, so it is recommended to wear on a thicker fabric like linnen.
