"Australia Sweet Home" Etched Broach/pin

Today I used my new found skills and made a Vintage style broach or pin.I used an old Australia printed filigree decorated part at the the top that I had got in a 2nd hand shop...I think it may have had a medal at the bottom in its hey day.Next I added the "sweet" word to a glass like charm using some silver wire to then attach it to the top and bottom


The bottom part is some etched nickel/silver done using a stamp and etching solution(as taught to me by Jen Crossley...hey Jen is it looking OK??).I then sanded it back so the words stood out more.Then I DRILLED holes LOL to use wire to attach the old pen nib and the top part.Lastly I added an typewriter font printed "home" word.
