This is my new line of fashion brooches: collage art you can wear.

This brooch measures 3.5 x 4.5 cm (1.4" x 1.75") and it's shaped as a 7-side polygon.

I have made each of these brooches from recycled cardboard covered in many layers of glued paper.
They are truly one of a kind, as the different scraps of papers give them a unique texture.

This one has a final layer of handmade paper with a stunning texture in grey and pale blue, and I then hand-printed it with a linocut design of Japanese-style abstract waves in black water-based printmaking ink.

They are then protected and varnished with several layers of an eco friendly, water-based glaze (so no nasty residues down our drains). A brooch pin is securely attached at the back with strong glue.

As these are basically made of paper and cardboard, they are incredibly light-weight. They feel light and precious at the same time.

:::Newly tested: they are completely waterproof! I need to be sincere: I forgot about it and ran a complete washing cycle with one of my brooches still attached to my t-shirt. It came out in perfect condition. So it will resist rain and moisture:::

Make sure to check my other brooches: some of them feature illustrations, and/or fun words in French and English!
