Iridescent Irish Rose Brooch

I had some DMC iridescent light effects thread and I thought that it would make a really pretty brooch.

The thread is pretty difficult to work with as it tends to split into the individual threads, it means that quite frequently I had to go back and rework stitches when the thread split and the work got "loopy".

The thread itself is quite tough, so its hard on your hands to work it.  I had to bandage my fingers to complete this one!

The central bobble is made with DMC metalic thread.
