Aurora's ceramics: Golden brooch with lemons, flowers and hanging leaves
This brooch is a colorful and brilliant jewel, representative of the sun and light of Italy.
The ceramic lemons are modeled from clay. The whole model is sectioned into two halves, emptied by digging out the excess clay and then closed.

The base of the brooch is in gold-plated brass.
The plating is 1 micron of 18 K gold, hypoallergenic as it excludes the use of nickel in processing steps
