Entry description

The clownfish and anemone have perfected the art of living together, a harmonious relationship protecting and benefitting from each other. Symbiosis is a layered sheet pewter brooch, with textured anemone sections and moving clownfish centrepiece, confidently on display, but able to swim within the protective anemone when it needs to hide.
