This brooch has been created from a beautiful but damaged 1950s brooch featuring a bunch of strawberries. One of the luscious strawberry shaped rhinestones was missing so I created a berry shaped replacement using vintage Czech glass beads.

As the pin back was also damaged and couldn't be repaired, I've mounted it on a vintage metal circle with an interesting patina to create a new brooch from old.

  • ethically and sustainably made
  • there is only one available
  • made with vintage components circa 1950s-60s and a new brooch finding
  • 5.5 cm in diameter
  • gold plated brooch finding with rollover catch

Sustainably made in Australia, this brooch contains vintage and repurposed materials. These hold some evidence of their former life in a deepened patina and minor wear; I think that is what gives them so much charm.
