Black Beauty - Horse brooch

I make these horse shaped brooches from offcuts of wood and MDF board and cover them in pages taken from my worn out copy of Black Beauty. The listing is for one brooch chosen at random. Please let me know if you prefer your horse to face a certain way.
If you like your jewellery a little more disturbing, check out my version made with pages from The Godfather ☛ http://www.etsy.com/listing/98621504/the-godfather-horse-brooch-classic-book

They measure approximately 5 x 4.5 cm / 2 x 1.75 inches and attach with a steel brooch pin.

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. Each brooch is 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 :D

I try to use as much recycled and reclaimed material in my pieces as possible.
