Mint brooch

Mint condition. Fresh as. Newly minted. Perfect....and so on.

 

The tin has been sawn from a tin containing strong mints, pressed out in my homemade press and templates, then set in a custom made, flat-backed sterling silver setting. The back of this one-of-a-kind brooch has a subtle texture of stars. The dot of the "i" is a bright faux-diamond.

 

2 x 4.5 cm (3/4inch by 1& 3/4inch).
