Spanish Madre in Blue

I'm reading a book translated from the spanish of the author, and set in the city of Seville, Spain. The book is called "The Seville Communion" and the author is Arturo Perez-Reverte. The translation is very good.

I haven't been to Seville, but part of Kansas City, Missouri is designed around the architecture of Seville.

It's really lovely, and ancient looking. I love the earthy colors, the many beautiful fountains and the ceramic tiles in the Kansas City Plaza, which is my image of what Seville must look like.

So my mind must be influenced by the images in the book. The author is very descriptive. I can just picture the church that is the main theme of the story.

So I think that's what caused me to come up with this focal brooch. It can be worn as a pendant or pinned on as a brooch. It needs a lovely cross or something as a dangle from the bottom loop.

Or maybe the key that reminds me of the oversized metal keys to the heavy wooden door to the cathedral.

I just added her to the Etsy shop, she's very special and one of a kind.

Lynn, you have just out done yourself on this one. This is so beautiful. I lived in KC for a year when we first came back from Australia. The plaza and the area around it is so gorgeous. The blue in this piece in particular somehow makes a specific connection with the plaza, for me anyway.
