This fantastic, original and intricate brooch has been delicately hand cut with a traditional jewelers saw and drill. Each brooch is a total ‘one-off’, completely unique.
Being handcrafted from an old soup spoon each one is absolutely original, recycled and ethically sound. The techniques used to create the brooch are time honored and traditional.
The concept is both modern and traditional. What is now termed recycling in the past may have been called resourcefulness. The simple thing separating the two are motif. Resourcefulness originating from saving money and recycling a principle to try and save the planet from ourselves!
An integral and interesting part of the brooch is the spoon from which it was cut. This simple ‘donor’ spoon is also given a little ‘Hairy Growler’ treatment. It is transformed in to an wonderful Objects D’ Art which acts a lovely resting place for the brooch when not being worn. Both are presented in a lovely box.
A fabulously unusual tree brooch with good credentials and a great conversation piece. Handmade and recycled in Cambridge.
