This Swallow-Tailed Kite Brooch is the first brooch of this entire series. It is hand fabricated and represents pure freedom.

The base is made from sterling silver, accented with sterling silver and jewelers brass wire. This brooch also features a stunning crow springs turquoise as well as a 3mm sapphire and 5mm topaz. Pin back closure is made from stainless surgical steel.
