Colour choices for a textile brooch

A few posts ago, I showed you a photograph of a new brooch I had made. Now I have completed another version of the same brooch in completely different colours and was struck by how different the two pieces look. I thought that people might be interested in seeing the two together.

With its “cloud” motif, the design felt quite Chinese so this version is executed in overtly “chinese” colours, though I added some salmon velvet appliqué in the end just to give some more variety and richness.

I would love to hear any opinions on the design, or preferences between the two colour schemes!

  1. Absolutely nice design and colours, I do love both versions but for me personnally, the red and gold is the winner, my very light skintone needs something to brighten it up.
