This pressure fit brooch snaps into place.  Three delrin (white, hard, carving plastic) pieces each with a track sit under the fabric of the wearer’s shirt, and the silver and bronze brooch stretches the fabric over the brooch and snaps into the track.  This piece is designed to be worn across the shoulders, near the nape of the neck,  and is approximately 8″ long by 5″ wide with a 2.5″ height away from the body.  It can be worn with all three delrin pieces or just one.  This piece was designed to illustrate the concept of feelings or ideas one tries to hide, which instead become pressure and weight, and eventually show themselves whether we want them to or not.  Materials used include silver, bronze and delrin.
