DESIGNING THE NEW POPPY BROOCH FOR THE ROYAL BRITISH LEGION

Earlier this year I was asked by The Royal British Legion to draw some new designs for the Poppy Appeal. An exciting project to be apart of and completely thrilled to see one of my ideas chosen as this years new brooch.

After sketching out the idea I use CAD software to translate my drawing into a 3D model. The above brooch was an alternative design playing with the shape and fluidity of the poppy, creating a more feminine, elegant line.

Above shows a technical drawing of a doubled tiered poppy idea encrusted with crystals. The back plate is inscribed with 'Lest we forget'.

Once the shape of the poppy had been finalised a technical file is created showing exactly how the poppy with look and fit together. With stone quantities and dimensions.

Here is the final poppy made in gold metal and red enamel with black and red crystals. You can buy directly from the Royal British Legion's online shop. Make sure you're wearing yours on Remembrance Sunday.
