Have you used old curtain rings? if so what a great idea

Wow, that roman brooch is amazing - I love the concept of using textile and metalwork... inspiring.

Thanks everyone for your nice comments and to Mandy for posting....purplestevie, the metal is oxidised silver that has been fused and formed.

Have a great weekend!
