* Step-by-step photos and instructions

Please note:
* You are purchasing the tutorial from which you can make the brooch, not the actual brooch. The brooches pictured are an example of what you could make.
* You may use this pattern for making items to sell as long as you credit me as designer and do not go into mass production.
