I was inspired by a recent challenge on the Harry Potter Crafts group I belong to, to make this brooch for a friend who adores cats :) The challenge was to make a craft piece about a character you hate from the stories/movies. I was fascinated by the cat brooch and ring that Professore Umbridge wore in the Order of the Pheonix movie. I recreated these for the challenge. Unhappy with the fact that mine were "flat" i embarked on a crafting journey to make my own "cabochon" type setting. I have done it here with plaster of paris, then covered it with the picture and then painted it with several coats of nail polish, then I beaded around it and embellished it with pearls.
I have included here pictures of the brooch and ring set and the "cabochon brooch".
