Velvet defines luxury in a brooch
Velvet shabby chic rose
Velvet has been for years, way back before Christ, the most desirable fabric for the wealthy and in renaissance time for the church. It is plush, soft and changes in hue with the movement of the fabric. It could make anyone look glamorous. Some of the wealthy back in the renaissance time would have metallic threads woven into the fabric bearing their coat of arms. I like to make beautiful flowers with velvet. They have the depth of color in them because of the changes the fabric makes when twisting the fabric around to make the flower.
Pink velvet brooch
This brooch has a beautiful rich pink colored rose for its centerpiece. There are three light green leaves on one side and a white lacy flower with a rhinestone center on the other side. Layers of lace, pearls, and seam binding flow loosely down from the rose. There are three charms, an angel, cross, and heart that dangle down from a string of pearls amongst the lacy layers, symbolizing hope, love, peace, and protection.
Symbolizing Hope, Love, Peace, and Christianity
In the above photo is a second velvet rose brooch. It has rhinestones down at the bottom edge, and it only has one charm, an angel symbolizing hope, love, and peace.
This brooch is a one of a kind handmade piece by Debra Eaves. There will be a shop opening on this website soon with items such as this brooch and other vintage shabby chic items. When the store opens, there will be a special limited time only sale price offered for these brooches. Hope to see you there.
