A brooch for a queen

In connection with Queen Elizabeth's diamond jubilee, I was trusted to make a brooch which was given to her when she, on her trip around the country, visited the town of Exeter. The brooch was designed by the Danish couple behind Studio RoSo whom I met during my studies at The Royal College of Art. The two designers has just designed a very beautiful piece of art to be installed in the town of Exeter, and the brooch was a miniature part of this sculptural representation of a tree. 
The many polished facets was a great challenge to my craftsmanship, but with a good deal of patience and technical skills the brooch was successfully completed and the queen was indeed happy when she received it at May 2nd in Exeter.
