FUCHSIA/BLUE FLOWERING GUM:
Flowering Gums have always fascinated me. Like many native Australian plants, when they flower they add so much prettiness to a relatively boring tree.
This flowering gum brooch is a slightly more abstract colour version.
It is made from a plain fuchsia pink acrylic with a frosted blue stalk. The dots on the flower have been etched and painted yellow.
It measures 69mm L x 70mm W and 5mm thick, with a silver plated locking pin on the back.
Designed, cut and assembled in Australia.
Frosted acrylic may show the glue underneath at some angles of light. NO handmade item is perfect and flawless. Your brooch may have tiny amounts of glue or brush strokes on it. If it does, these will be minor. I have a very high standard of quality and won't send anything that is not to my standard.
Marbled and glitter acrylics can differ from piece to piece. It may take on a slightly different pattern or even have tiny flaws (like uneven surface). This is unavoidable but it is rarely even noticeable. Chunky glitters don't always fill the acrylic resin. Small pieces may have sections of clear acrylic, this is just the nature of chunky acrylic and is out of my control when getting it cut.
Your brooch will come packaged using recycled and recyclable paper and cardboard, using as little plastic as possible. They will arrive in a 100% biodegradable cellophane bag. I encourage all my customers to reuse their packaging where they can.
All my business cards and backing cards are printed on 100% recycled card.
