Black Filigree Beaded Brooches

A while back, I found these black enameled filigree disks.  I'm not always sure if I'm using a component in the manner it was intended, but then again, I'm not sure if it really matters.  I made several brooches with these little filigrees.  The first photo shows the brooch with fuchsia rhinestones and cream pearls. 
This one was done with all green.
White and red.  When I used seed beads rather than perfectly round beads, you can see the thread a little more.
This last one has a red beaded center and heart shaped rhinestones.  I think I'd like this one for Valentine's Day!


  1. I think you did exactly what the original piece was meant for- a base to show off beautiful beads! Great idea and great work! I'd wear them!
