A dynamic tiny flock of oxidised sterling silver starlings hover over a sky of blue perspex engraved with intricate cloud patterns. The frame and back plate of the brooch are made from sterling silver with a polished oxidised finish. 9ct gold pin wire forms the sturdy double fastening on the rear.
4.8 × 5.5 × 0.5 cm
Use a soft cloth to remove finger-prints and a very fine sable brush to remove dust from the engraved perspex surface. Do not use any silver cleaning products on the oxidised areas as this will remove the patination.
This brooch was inspired by the swooping aerobatics of the starlings that flock near my workshop. The outer wall of the brooch is formed by wrapping silver around a favourite pebble.

Cari-Jane Hakes makes and designs jewellery in her workshop on the edge of the East Yorkshire Wolds.
She is originally from Glasgow, Scotland and learnt how to design whilst studying to become an Architect at the University of Bath and the University of Cambridge. Whilst learning how to design buildings and bridges she became fascinated with the details – the bits of architecture which scale a building right down to the size of a human hand – a door handle, a handrail, a staircase, a bench.
Cari swapped her hard-hat and rigger boots for a soldering torch and jeweller’s saw in 2005 and began to learn the discipline of jewellery making and design at Morley College, London.
Cari-Jane’s work explores themes that embody movement; both literal and metaphorical. Her newest collection focuses on representing the movement of the starlings that swoop close to her workshop.
