These fused glass brooches were commissioned to be gifted at a conference for women and leadership. The client thought the pin by artist Vivian Shimoyama, "Breakthru The Glass Ceiling," would be a perfect fit. We contacted Ms. Shimoyama and, with her blessing, created a version of her original pin.
The brooch is composed of Egyptian blue glass topped with three layers of gold leaf. This component was capped with clear glass and brought to a full fused. It was then tack fused to the clear iridescent elements to create the finished piece. Because of the capricious nature of gold leaf, each of the 400 brooches is a unique piece of wearable art. A stainless steel pin back was affixed to the back of each brooch. The brooches were presented in gift boxes attached to a card which acknowledged the inspirational piece by Ms. Shimoyama.
