Hearts of Gold
Heart of Gold-Neil Young 1971
I am brooch happy lately! I am using thick, luxurious plant dyed wool that is lovely to work with.
Putting together colors is so fun. After cutting out many hearts of various sizes and colors I assemble pleasing combinations. I don't think about it too much; I let spontaneity and inspiration take hold.
I assembled 20 or so color combinations but then worked on each brooch individually-embroidering and embellishing as the fancy strikes me. Some people plan out their projects in a sketch book. I may jot down ideas in a broad way so I don't forget them but I don't sketch details. I have a stash of cotton floss, charms, glass beads and metal buttons that I use in an intuitive way. This means sometimes I take apart what I have done because it was not pleasing.
Put a Little Love in Your Heart-Jackie De Shannon 1968
