Within a circular brushed brooch setting I have sewn countless tiny french knots to create this gradation piece, which goes from dark smoky gray at the center to white knots on the periphery. The background fabric is 100% black cotton. Much like my ombre / gradient french knot hoops, this purely abstract piece was a fun exercise in trying to fade the thread from dark to light. This brooch will bring any outfit a little pop of interest and because it's made from such neutral colors, it will go with just about everything.

The metal frame measures approximately 43mm in diameter, or 1.69 inches (4.3 cm). See the second and fourth pictures for size referencing. This is a truly one of a kind piece that took me just about two hours to hand-sew. It's an art piece meant to be worn with lots of love! :)

For shipping, the brooch will be carefully wrapped and sent in a bubble envelope to ensure it arrives at your doorstep safely.

To keep shipping costs down, I mail everything via USPS First-Class mail with delivery confirmation and tracking, unless otherwise requested (just email or convo me before you order if you want faster shipping or insurance for a slightly higher fee). If you live within the United States, I guarantee to ship your item(s) by the next business day once your payment clears through Paypal or direct checkout.
For international orders, please allow an additional day or two for me to properly package your purchase and get it to my local post office. I will issue a Paypal refund of the difference if shipping ends up costing less than what you pay.
