This pretty brooch was hand cut from the bell of a two different retired French Horns. The brooch measures approximately 1.875 inches wide by 0.75 of an inch high. Three pieces of horn are layered with a heart stamped on the top piece.
Our instrument parts led exciting and productive lives before retirement and their imperfections tell a soulful story of their past. This piece, in particular, has some natural wear and tear on it which shows clearly in one of the photos above.
