Ever wanted to find a message in a bottle while strolling along the beach? I know I have! Well, now you can stop your search, you can have your very own!
This brooch has been lovingly illustrated and designed to be made into a Hungry Designs brooch. It has been drawn and coloured by Hungry Designs' very own Amanda Whitelaw and cannot be found anywhere else.
Quick Brooch rundown:
Bottle brooch - 10cm tall (from tip to toe of brooch - including cork)
Engraved and laser cut acrylic
Hand painted engraving
4 pieces glued together - Hand Painted Transparent Acrylic, hand painted orange acrylic "cork" and Clear Acrylic backing
Hand rolled paper scroll tied and finished with metallic turquoise thread
Hook brooch back
Laser cut, glued and painted by hand, it's the perfect brooch for yourself, a friend or loved one. The whole brooch has been hand painted and then sandwiched between acrylic to give the illusion of a real message in a bottle.
**Please note that the scroll inside the bottle cannot be removed, the cork is glued into place.**
Securely attached to the back is a large hinged brooch back. This brooch fantastic attached to a bag, jacket, cardi or hat. Please note that the brooch looks best pinned on a light coloured top, this makes the message in a bottle really stand out!
Every brooch is slightly different and contain little air bubbles but we really think this adds to the uniqueness of this brooch. These air bubbles can rarely be seen when wearing and only obvious when holding the brooch up to direct light.
This brooch is made from 4 pieces of acrylic that have been sandwiched together using industrial strength glue. The facing acrylic is backed onto clear acrylic. The acrylic has been hand painted with 2 coats of matte acrylic paint by Amanda of Hungry Designs.
It doesn't mind a wee spot of rain, but please don't forget to remove it from clothing before putting the item in the washing. It doesn't look anywhere near as cute when it's wet.
