I made this sea collection pin using the antique gold-toned stamped metal findings of an octopus, two fish, a seahorse and a lobster. I also glued on a scattering of pearls and one faux red gem. I highlighted certain parts of this brooch with a brighter gold-toned paint to give it a bit of shine and to add a little interest to the piece.

I collected the sea-oriented findings for this brooch several years ago with the thought of making something for myself as a sort of wearable scrapbook, due to the fact that I used to work for a commercial fisherman when I was a teen. It also makes me think of that old Beatles' song: Octopus's Garden.

It's a great summertime brooch or could be used with a Steampunk or similar costume or something to wear when going out to dinner at a seafood restaurant, seafood festival or other similarly themed party or event.

Measurements:

It measures (approximately) a little over 2.5 inches wide and just under 2 inches from the top to the bottom of the brooch. Its Metric measurement is (approximately) 6 cm x 5 cm.

A Note On International Shipping:

Due to various Customs Regulations (Restrictions and Prohibitions) throughout the international community, I regretfully decline to ship outside of the United States at this time. I do apologize for any inconvenience.

[ Please note that I used a small swatch of white cloth to help prop the brooch up while I photographed it. It is not attached to the brooch. Please see some of the other photos where I didn't use the cloth for propping. Thank you. ]
