Cameo Brooch by shishah Cameo Brooch by shishah
A tiny cameo painting on cherrywood. I just finished another one, which i will upload soon.

This is smaller than it appears because i have the worlds tiniest hands.

Goauche and watercolour on cherrywood with a matte varnish.

I think i am insane, mostly. It is painful! I must suffer handcramps for my art. Also tiny brushes.

Are you actually going to turn them into pins or charms? i can see that on a long chain with maybe a metal feather or something.... mainly because im obsessed with feathers. I'd wear it its perfect :)

They have little brooch backs attached, but i'm making some to be worn as pendants, too. I like your idea of adding a little feather charm! maybe i will have to hunt some down.
