What are you most proud of? The way that it becomes 3D but also the fact that this is the first project that I have just improvised.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If using wire, not to pull it too tight as there is no give in it. Also to think about the order you want the crystals or beads in the finished brooch before you thread them onto the yarn. They will need to be in reverse order. If in doubt have a go at making the basic pattern in some odd bit of yarn before you make the final version so you get the idea of which bit is where.
