I make these brooches from offcuts of wood and MDF board and cover them in pages taken from my worn out copy of Pride and Prejudice. The listing is for one brooch chosen at random.
Please get in touch if you would like a heart brooch made with another book - I love custom orders!
The brooches measure approximately 50 x 50mm. They attach with a 1¼ inch steel brooch pin.
I also have smaller versions available here
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.
