brooches





Last year I turned up to The Finders Keepers market in Melbourne very excited about my products and especially my new wooden laser cut brooch designs. That was until I looked around and... every second stall (and I'm exaggerating here for the sake of a good story) had... wooden laser cut brooches. And they were stunningly beautiful. I even bought one from another stallholder. Doh. My resolve, as much fun as they are to design, don't make any more.
A year has passed. My love for laser cut wood has not faded. I have designed new products (Stitch Panels) and with that new design came a little space at the bottom of my template that needed to be used up. Yep, brooch sized space. I recently bought some very cute little round silver tins, yep... brooch sized. So it seems the universe was saying something to me. You do the math.
I'll be bringing these to Finders Keepers next month and crossing my fingers that no one else has 'embroidered wooden laser cut brooches in little round silver tins'.

Love! I'll be at FK as a stall holder- Can I get one unstitched? Do they come as a kit? I have a friend who'd love it.

I love them! If you had been at the Bowerbird Bazaar in Adelaide today I definitely would have bought one...

Sorry, they are not as a kit, Rosalie. I've stitched them all up already and glued the pins on the back. But I do have a few wall panels that will be kits (and in the same timber).
