Announcement I love designing and making brooches almost (but not quite) as much as I love wearing them. I also adore anything in miniature. Here in my shop you can find some of the designs I have been making since 2010 but keep coming back to look out for more being added.

My cat brooch is simply adorable--I have it pinned on to my purse so it goes everywhere I do (unlike my real cat!). Love it!
All my brooches are designed, cut out and hand sewn by me at home in Scotland.
I love to sew and I love to share the joys of handmade. All the materials used to make my brooches are from fellow Etsians as I believe it is important to support these independent designers and sellers.
Brooches, to me, are a fun and necessary accessory to any cardigan, coat or bag.
There is nothing that is not improved with a brooch pinned on it I say.
Each brooch may vary slightly, but only ever so slightly, from the images and please, oh pretty please, respect my rights as designer and do not copy, or claim my design as your own.
Accepted payment methods

I you wish to cancel an order please do this within 24 hours and I will refund you
Australia/New Zealand - 7 December.
Europe and USA -11 December.
UK - 15 December.
* PLEASE NOTE - ordering by these dates will get your order shipped by the recommended last shipping dates set by Royal Mail but I cannot guarantee your order arriving by Christmas.
I aim to post all brooches within 1-3 days (not including weekends and holidays) by second class (there really is no real difference between this and first class in the UK these days) via Royal Mail and will contact you when I have done so. This should mean your order will be with you in a day or two in the UK but can take a little longer.
I aim to ship all brooches within 1-3 days (not including weekends and holidays) by International Standard airmail via Royal Mail. This can take up to 4 weeks depending on delays, busy periods and any custom delays but under normal circumstances should only take 10 to 14 days.
Please get in touch with me if you have any concerns about a delay.
Any tax, duties or other custom fees incurred on arrival is the buyers responsibility.
Standard postage from the UK has cover for loss or damage of up to £20. Buyers please contact me if you wish to order 4 or more brooches at one time. The shipping costs listed reflect a covering of loss or damage of up to £20 only. Shipping will cost more if you would like me to ship to reflect up to £50.
Orders are not tracked unless you wish them to. Please contact me for a postage quote on signed for/tracked mail before ordering as the cost will be considerably higher.
Postage costs cover postage fees AND packaging. Also my time for travelling to my local post office.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are unhappy with your order or feel is is wrong please contact me immediately and we can discuss the best resolution.
If you are returning an item it must be within 7 days and arrive back in the same condition as it was posted out. Proof of postage is required and cost of returning postage is the responsibility of the buyer.
If you are to receive a refund I will do so through Paypal but only on the price of the item/s, not on the original postage cost.
Unfortunately I cannot take any responsibility for lost or damaged packages but keep any receipts as proof of postage and can try to assist the best I can so please contact me so we can try to work something out.
The Royal Mail is usually very capable and should deliver to you without problems.
