This brooch/pin was hand painted by me on a chip of wood, which was later varnished.  I adhered it to the shimmery orange fabric and beaded around it in yellows and oranges with the peyote stitch.  The backing is leather and the pin blank is embedded into the leather.  There is a little blue green czech glass bead on the end of the beaded "tail" of the brooch.

So original! Now I am inspired to try doing something similar with a flower painting, but as a charm (not a brooch).
