These pin on rose brooches feature three leaves and are fully painted by hand. The average diameter of the rose is about 1 5/8" (41 mm) with the tips of the leaves being from the left point to the far point averaging about 2 3/8" (60 mm) across.
Made with either brass or copper petals with a dark patina applied to give a color differential and highlight the hand texturing on every part.
The leaves are typically arranged with with three (two on one left side) but it can be made with only two if desired. . Being constructed of sturdy sheet metal and bent to shape they are quite strong and will handle rather severe abuse if such should occur. Feel free to mix and match characteristics or request something special. Every single aspect of producing these brooches is performed with by hand from the numerous hammer strikes for texture, the bending, cutting, riveting, and painting.
