Shop Update: Hand Drawn Brooches

I am so excited to share with you some new items that I have put in the shop today. It feels like I have been working on these brooches for ages trying to perfect them for you, and now here they are! It feels amazing to be able to finally show them all to you, and not just little peeks here and there.

Each brooch is one-of-a-kind, and all of the artwork in the brooches are hand drawn by me on 44lb matte paper with coloured pencils and/or an archival ebony marker. They are then sealed in a beautiful wooden bezel, that is made of mahogany or cherry wood, with resin, and a pin is attached to the back of each one with an industrial strength adhesive.

Each bezel is handmade by the shop ArtBase and sold with finishing. They are very smooth to the touch with no sharp edges, and sealed and polished by hand for a natural luster. They use premium sustainable hardwood.
