The handmade Machu brooch by Mainichi features recycled timber with repurposed wooden matchsticks assembled into graphical colour combinations and sealed with many coats of matt varnish.

Mainichi encompasses my jewellery design and interior design practice. I work from a home based studio, situated on the edge of the Yarra Valley in Victoria, Australia. I juggle making and designing with being a full time single parent to two young children.

My materials come from industry offcuts and discarded samples, others are recycled from op shops and some are found in the bush and surrounds.

The timber used for these brooches came from my Grandfather's former woodworking shed, and the coloured matchsticks are repurposed craft materials picked up at op (thrift) shops. The whole brooch has been meticulously coated in a matt water based varnish to protect the timber, and a metal brooch pin has been glued onto the reverse.

Sizes vary from piece to piece but a rough guide is 12cm wide x 7cm high and 1cm thick. Please nominate your colour preference on checkout.

Postage on these items is a little higher to cover the cost of protective packaging for the post!
