This stunning brooch is made of sterling silver and acrylic by Laura Hutchcroft, of Inteplei. Two strong magnets on the back will hold it securely to your garment; no pins necessary. The asymmetrical design means you can wear it in any orientation. Recalling the elements of design, this piece is truly 3-dimensional: the two sterling silver arcs project from white acrylic circle about 1¼ inches (3.1 cm).
2 inches (5 cm) diameter

Inteplei (in-tuh-play) jewelry is created through exploration and play, often with no clear outcome in mind. Themes are built around recurring elements; an interplay of simple geometrics, organic forms, and a minimalist aesthetic. Influenced by the diversity of modern architecture and the natural world. My work is a combination of engineering and aesthetics. With a direct approach to composition, constructions are based on tension systems, and connections are made by the simplest means. Experimenting with various material and their possibilities of expression has resulted in a collection of individualistic jewelry that is equally prepared to make a statement, and become an everyday favorite. Laura Hutchcroft is self taught as an artist and metalsmith, and each piece of her work is carefully constructed by hand in her studio workshop.
