I make these beetle shaped brooches from offcuts of wood and MDF board and cover them in pages taken from a worn out copy of Kafka. The listing is for one brooch chosen at random. Please let me know if you prefer your beetle to face a certain way.
Measurements: 7.5 x 5 cm / 3 x 2 inches
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.
