The King & Queen

Here's another one of the pieces from my solo show which I am particularly fond of…

King & Queen Brooch
© Margaux Lange 2009


This brooch was a fun one for me because it allowed me to play around with narrative, which I'm enjoying more and more in my work. Depending on the positioning on the wearer's clothing, you can change the "relationship" of the king and queen, creating a playful dialog between the characters. Still available at Luke & Eloy Gallery.

Oh gosh, this piece is just beautiful! I think it's my favourite so far! Your pieces just get better and better, you'll bankrupt me if i get to a gallery who sells your pieces!

Thanks everyone! This piece IS a fun one :-) I like to imagine it on a cardigan… like those 50's sweater brooches…

These brooches are probably my favorite of all your pieces! They remind me of a chained brooch I wore a lot in the 80's but was not nearly as cool as these are!
