G'day. With wire, rhinestone gems and enamel charms, this mixed media bouquet brooch by Pierre Cavalan features famous attractions of Sydney. There are enamel ovals of different hues of the opera house, Centrepoint Tower, Fort Denison and red ribbons with "Sydney" written on them. These are brought together with garnet colored rhinestones and wire wrapping. Measuring 2 1/2" x 2", this little opus is backed by metal and signed "Pierre Cavalan" under the clasp. Unusual and striking in reds, blues and greens, this piece is a good example of the work of Mr. Cavalan on a small scale. An award winning Sydney based artist, Pierre Cavalan uses found objects and recycles them into original jewelry and collages. Much of his work is in museums and galleries.
