Christine Damm finished this story brooch with distress oxides and metallics on

Vermont’s Christine Damm (StoriesTheyTell) makes earthy, rough-hewn pieces with surfaces that look weathered and worn.

Here she played with distress oxides that make the polymer brooch look like it was unearthed and brushed off to reveal a story from another time. Christine builds layers of color, of texture, of materials, of design, of meaning that require a curious and daring wearer.

This piece lingered in her studio until she ringed it with polymer snakes that she accented with metallics and proclaimed its story sufficiently told.

    Thanks for featuring me today on PCD! I’m working hard on finishing my tutorial for the Distress® Oxides®– they are so much fun to work with!
