Clamshell crochet brooch

I had an idea for a crocheted shell as a brooch with surface details, beads and a real pearl. This is the result. I didn’t have any starting point or pattern – just went with the flow. It felt much more like sculpture than crochet – definitely satisfied my creative itch.


It’s not very practical to wear though as it is a little bulky and the position of the pin means that it tilts down when attached to a lapel. I’m going to take all that on board and make another.
