3D Printed, gold coloured steel brooch – part of the QUATREFOIL range. A simple and elegant shape, with a gorgeous, light, sparkle texture, is lightweight enough to wear on a scarf, or through chunkier knitwear.
Methods and materials
The brooch is part of a series of patterns I’ve created with CAD, based on a single shape, multiplied and manipulated, before being printed directly in steel and plated in a gold colour.
The hand-crafted pin on the back is made of sterling silver and has been shaped and polished down to an elongated but rounded point – this ensures it doesn’t tear any fabric it goes through. It also sits quite close to the front so the brooch won’t stick out when it’s worn. It can go through loftier knitwear as shown, but also works on slightly finer fabric.
To hide the pin completely when it’s worn, push as much fabric through as the length of the pin.
