This brooch was designed on the computer, 3D printed, hand-dyed, and then assembled with traditionally created sterling silver components. The brooch pin is removed by pulling one of the block details at one end of the sail spars. Inspired by the sails of Asian Junk rigs, the hull components blend into what appears to be a vortex of wind or water. This piece could be alternatively be worn around the neck and is available to be ordered in other color schemes. Like many Fair Winds Jewelry pieces, this piece would also enhance the décor of a nautical or tropical theme as a wall piece.
