This 'f' measures
1¼ x 1 15/16 inches
(3 x 4.9cm)
and has a 1¼ inch steel pin firmly glued on the back.
It is covered in vintage maps of England.



All of my brooches are one of a kind, made from collaging various bits of vintage paper onto off-cuts of wood and board that otherwise would be thrown away. I laser cut the letters so they are perfectly shaped and sealed at the edges. Each brooch is then given between 2-3 coats of varnish for protection and a super glossy finish. They have been known to survive trips in the washing machine (although such adventures are not recommended).

I try to use as much recycled and reclaimed material in my pieces as possible.This map dates from the late 1940's early 50's and was badly damaged before I got my hands on it!
