Fox and Grapes Pin


Maker :: Chickenscratch

This whimsical pin is a take on Aesop's parable of the fox and the grapes. A complex piece featuring multiple finishes, it's crafted from hand-cut brass and copper, oxidized in a rich purple and green patina, then gold leafed. Closes with handmade pin mechanism.
