Powertex and Jewelry Resin - Part Three The Brooch

This is my second finished project featuring a resin filled bezel I created with Powertex.
My first post explains how I made two special bezels.
The second post shows you the felted collar I created to showcase one of the bezels.
These were the original bezels.
 For my felted brooch I pulled out some felt, roving and fibers.
 I machine felted them until I had a pleasing brooch shape.
 I added sari ribbon with my sewing machine too.
After sewing my bezel to the new felt background I felt I needed just a little bit more embellishment.
This hand spun curly artisan wool is so special.
I sewed it in place and then added my bar pin.
