The SECRET FLOWER NEBULA alternatively known as XBY000-02 is one of the most famous nebulae on the sky. Bright yellow and violet stars are still forming in the heart of the SECRET FLOWER NEBULA. Light takes about 7,000 years to reach us from XBY000-02, which spans about 20 light years and can be seen with binoculars toward the constellation of the Silky Hands.
This unique needle felted brooch was born after I got some gorgeous one-of-a-kind spinning batts made by Steph Gorin of Loop. The textures, shades and glitzes of these beauties inspired me to create Universe inspired items and to bring some magical images from outer space to the earth.
The brooch is needle felted by hand and with felting machine/embellisher onto cheer fabric and could be worn on everyday clothing or evening gown, on hat or bag...There is safety pin on the back.
This brooch measures approx 10 cm X 13 cm / 3.9" X 5.1"
