To Kill a Mockingbird - Finch brooch
I make these finch shaped brooches from offcuts of wood and MDF board and cover them in pages taken from my worn out copy of To Kill a Mockingbird. The listing is for one brooch chosen at random. Please let me know if you prefer your bird to face a certain way.
They measure approximately 3½ x 1½ inches (8.5 x 4cm) and have a traditional 1 inch steel brooch fastening firmly glued onto the back.
All of my brooches are one of a kind, made from collaging various bits of vintage paper onto off-cuts of wood and board that otherwise would be thrown away. Each brooch is given between 2-3 coats of varnish for protection and a super glossy finish. They have been known to survive trips in the washing machine, although such adventures are not recommended :D
I try to use as much recycled and reclaimed material in my pieces as possible.
