This brooch is modeled after organic forms that encapsulate various small wonders, such as sea shells and pea pods. The shell forms on the pin are left open, displaying the spectacles that lie within.

The brooch is hollow constructed and the shell structure was scored with a saw to create more sharp edges. I drew the tubing for the double-back pin stem from sheet metal using a draw plate. Each of the holes is hand sawed.
