Sup brooch - Into The Wild

My second submission for the Sup brooch exhibition mixed a little of my obsession with the 2007 film directed by Sean Penn Into The Wild and a bit of my Scottish heritage.

The Sup brooch exhibition will be showcasing brooches made for and worn exclusively by men.

I wanted this piece to refer back to the form of a war medal - a 'brooch' that is proudly worn by many men. I was lucky to have the Hybrid Handmade Husband on stand by to model this brooch for me.
