This aqua blue - green Island of CRETE brooch / lapel pin is an upcycled piece from a G.J. Hayter & Co. LTD "Victory Plywood Jig Saw Puzzle of Industrial Life in Europe", which was a hand cut wood jigsaw puzzle map made from 1963 to 1967. CRETE is a green gem in the Mediterranean Sea, and this wearable history pin is a great idea for a gift under $25! In addition to the country name, there are graphics to represent the industrial life of that country in the early 1960s. All the wood pieces of the jigsaw puzzles were hand cut, and the countries were cut to shape. I think the hand cut nature of the puzzle, as well as the colorful graphics, is so unique.

The Crete brooch/lapel pin measures 1-1/2" by 1-1/2" in size, and has a locking pinback securely affixed to the back. This brooch would make a unique gift for birthdays or other occasions, or to purchase for your own pleasure. It gives you history from a prior age that you can wear to complement your clothing. The brooch will be shipped in on cardstock with a photo of the puzzle header and a brief history of the G.J. Hayter Company and their hand cut wooden jigsaw puzzles.

The last picture shows one of the brooches (my personal one) worn on a garment. This brooch is from my pet-free and smoke-free home and has not been worn.
