Oversized Owl Shaped Layered Aluminum Brooch

I am happily taking Independent Study with my Jewelry professor Christina Smith.

My first assignment was to create an oversized brooch using multiple layers of colored sheets of aluminum:

Oversized Owl Brooch

To make the owl, I stacked four colored sheets and cut the main shape simulaneously, then sequentially removed material from the top layers to expose other colors.

I also experimented with masking and sandblasting to create the shapes on the rose, flaking off the colored coating for definition.

I am giving this brooch to my dear friend Meliana for her birthday - she has such a passion for owls!
