GREEN GUM LEAVES:
This gumnut/gum leaves brooch is made from layers of laser cut acrylic.
The leaves are made of three different green acrylics (one solid, 2 frosted). It is topped with laser cut and etched wood gumnuts. Although this brooch is 10cm long, it can easily be double-brooched with my matching Flowering Gum brooch.
It has a silver plated locking pin on the back of the flower, and a second, smaller non-locking pin on the back of the leaf for extra security.
It measures 100mm L x 31mm W and 8mm H (at its thickest point).
*The wood used in this brooch has come from sustainably managed forests in the USA and is part of the sustainable forestry initiative growing 2.29 trees for every 1 that is harvested.
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.
