Mixed Media Brooch - Beaded Poetry Collage Made with Vintage Supplies

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


This sweet one of a kind mixed media brooch was built around a brass coloured vintage pin. The brooch features a small collage I made with a sliver of vintage photo and cut up dictionary text, all sealed under a layer of mica. From the bottom edge dangles a grouping of vintage glass bead loops, creating lovely movement to this piece.

The text reads "don't go, (I am still disappearing"

Wear this like a medal of honour or as a lovely brooch, or whatever way you resonate with this tiny piece of art.

- The brooch measures 5x4,5cm / 2"x1.8" in total; the base alone is 5x1,8cm / 2"x0.7"

See my shop's About section for photos of how I wrap my items. They always arrive ready for gifting or for simply treating yourself to something special.

Please note that due to differences in monitors your book may differ slightly in color from what you see on your screen. I do my absolute best to represent the colors as accurately as possible.

BEAUTIFUL! The attractive Kimono fabric gives this notebook a lovely, soft feel. It was of course, perfectly made, impressively packaged and shipped very quickly. Thank you!

Wonderful - who would have thought that a mere notebook could be so beautiful and yet so functional! So inspirational, it's almost too nice to spoil with my incoherent scribblings :-)
Delivery from Finland to UK was only a few days.

Kiipis Kaija!

Meticulously made and a joy to use. The pages are heavy and take pencil drawings to fountain pen writing. As an amateur bookbinder, I know what to look for and this journal is perfect in all the most difficult and subtle ways!

I don’t currently make any custom order books, and it’s not really something I expect to change any time in the near future. My Aspergers has the most effect on my time and stress management skills (and sadly I find all sorts of negotiation extremely stressfull, even if it’s with nice people about nice matters), and I’ve simply found it’s best for my health to work at my own pace. This way I can always guarantee the high quality of my work I hold so important. Nothing is designed or finished in a rush, so you can trust you’re always getting the best product possible.
Free gift wrapping!

Your order will always arrive gift wrapped in a nice, minimalistic manner, all ready for gifting, or for treating yourself to something special. I also include in my orders a mini bio, as well as a small info about the history of Coptic bindings if your order includes one.

If your order is a gift to someone, I'm happy to include a small note from you to the recipient at no extra cost! Just leave me a message about it during checkout, and I'll take care of it.
