Star Anise Brooch Pin

Star Anise Brooch Pin features the Star shape spices floating in resin. I love to take gifts from nature and use them in my art.  Cinnamon is another spice that I use in making wood jewelry. The process is to pick the best shape Anise Star seed pods and cast them in clear epoxy resin. The block is then put on a wood lathe where I turn the casting into a cylinder that will fit the silver tone Brooch metal finding. Once the two pieces are together I dome the pin with clear epoxy which enhances the color and provides exceptional protection to the item.

Should be fun to have your friends guess what is in the Pin. I have yet to have someone identify the Anise Seed Pod.  When I tell them that it is Anise they do get it, that is if they know what natural Anise looks like.  I didn’t until I saw it in a spice store and purchased some, not for cooking, but for jewelry.  I can’t cook to save myself, but I do make jewelry so I can eat.

The pin size is 1 1/2 inches in diameter.  This much smaller than a brooch Madeleine Albright wears.  Maybe if I send her one she will wear it.

Gift Idea

This is Perfect Chef Gift or someone who loves to cook or maybe eat.  Maybe you know Madeleine Albright and need a birthday gift for her.
