This red, pink and black feathered Chaffinch wood brooch - pin and Chaffinch name brooch - lapel pin are upcycled wood puzzle pieces from the UK in the 1960s, and this is a great idea for a unique gift under $50.

Ah, the 60's in London, with Carnaby Street in all its glory, hip designers like Mary Quant whose clothing could be found in trendy boutiques in the US, "birds" like Twiggy gracing the magazine covers, and much more.

G.J. Hayter & Co. LTD of Bournemouth, UK made Victory Bird Watching Puzzles from 1963 to 1967. All the wood pieces of the jigsaw puzzles were hand cut, and the birds were cut to shape. I think the hand cut nature of the puzzle, as well as the colorful graphics is so unique.

There is a 2-page interview with me and my bird pins in the May, 2009 issue of Little Thing Magazine! The last picture in the listing shows the article.

The Chaffinch brooch - pin measures 2-1/2" (6.35cm) by 1-3/8" (3.4925cm) in size, and has a locking pin back securely affixed to the back. Your purchase also includes a separate wood puzzle piece containing the bird name on it, with a pin back. You can position the pins close together or wear just the name on a bag, or whatever you fancy at the moment.

This brooch would make a unique gift for birthdays or other occasions, or to purchase for your own pleasure. The bird will be living in a 3-1/2" x 3-1/2" brown kraft jewelry box, nestled in a tiny bird nest and accompanied by the name pin. The inside lid of the box will contain some pictures of the puzzle and a history of the bird brooch.

The fourth picture shows one of the bird brooches worn on a garment.
