Religious Kitsch Brooches
When I told my husband that these are loaded in gawdiness and who knows if anyone would buy them he said this very important point: "what religious souvenirs have you seen that you've looked at and said, "oh that's absolutely beautiful"-religious souvenirs are MEANT to be gawdy and tacky!" So hopefully I've hit the nail on the head with these! I'm going to post them for sale on etsy over the next few days! I do apologize but I don't know the names of the Saints and would love for someone to come along a tag the ones they can identify so I can give them accurate titles. I have to send you to beebalalou's flickr photostream and etsy shop to see where I got my inspiration from--all this kitsch needed to turn into brooches! I was trying to stick them on yarn flowers and felt with sequins but I had a little help looking at beebalalou's amazing creations--you HAVE to see her stuff--she has a bounty of FLOCKED ANIMALS!! and plastic swans! Oh what beauty.
