Ooh it's nearly that time of the year - that's right Martinis & Slippers Christmas Brooch Release!
This year I really struggled to create something unique and my brain came through with the goods much later than I would have liked but still, better late than never.
I have started creating my own flavoured sugar syrups for my cocktails and while making Wisteria Syrup I thought a Christmas Cocktail Brooch would be cute, but it had to have some interactivity to it so why not use a Candy Cane as a swizzle stick and I'm really thrilled with how it's turned out. There are two colour ways, you can have red or green.
Of course I always have Christmas music playing in the background on Christmas Day (it's the only time I can play it and no one complains!) and I have wanted to do an album/record brooch so of course what a great opportunity to release my very own Christmas Albums!
The record in these brooches slides in and out!
I also decided to play around with my Australian Snowman Jar brooch and created a new Melted Snowman Brooch - all the same elements just in a glittery puddle.
My newly crowned forever favourite Christmas Brooch is the Christmas Chalet Brooch. This one took it's sweet time to be finally realised in my minds eye and I did procrastinate and if I didn't push myself to get it finished I swear this brooch would have been ready for Easter! However I got there in the end and I'm just thrilled with how perfect it is. I have made some small changes to this brooch since this pic was done - check out the Roman numerals - this was my test clock and I sent the wrong artwork to be cut...hmmm. It's fixed now!
All these brooches and some festive themed earrings will be available from here on Martinis & Slippers on WEDNESDAY 9TH NOVEMBER 2022 AT 7.30PM AEDT (Melbourne, Australia).
