Beautiful brooches! Jacarandas (next to flame trees) are just beautiful beyond belief.
PS: Hope you are surviving the Wet!

Those brooches are absolutely stunning and I've not seen anything like them. Well done. I hope you sell loads. They are beautiful. Love the Jacaranda!

Gorgeous! I love Jacaranda's too. We used to live in a part of Sydney that was very hilly and as you drove over the crest of a hill you would just see Jacaranda's in bloom everywhere at this time of year. You've made me realise how much i miss that!

Kate they are divine!!! I have been photographing all the Jacarandas in our town, Herberton QLD , which is famous for the Jacaranda trees as my MIL is going to paint some. I will have to email you some photos :-) I have been going to do some needle felted brooches with the purple snow! PS thanks for the link xx

in the far north when Karen and I lived there a few years ago, i saw my first jacaranda and was just BLOWN away that a tree could be so purple!!!!!!!!!
I planted a baby but we moved to wellington and its too cold down here for such tropical lovliness!!
Beautiful brooches, they're so delicately stitched, well done!

they are sooo lovely and perfectly capture the trees.

Jacaranda was one of two school sports teams (v small school) the other was tallowood.

Our school had its share of jac's and I remember threading the blossoms that had fallen down, onto sticks. I think my favourite part is the purple carpet...

Get to grafton soon i say!

(I noticed a mulberry today RIGHT in the city!)

Jacarandas always make me think of exams. These beautiful brooches will erase that memory forever.
