Erstwilder x Clare Youngs - A Turtle Named Groan Brooch
This just might be the craftiest Erstwilder collection yet! Part of a collaboration with gifted craft author, illustrator, and collage artist, Clare Youngs, this limited-run and enchanting turtle brooch has been hand assembled from a mix of textured resins and completed with hand painted and printed detailing, bringing Clare's work to life as wearable art!
56mm x 61mm (H x W)
“We highly recommend that you come out of your shell, if only for a little while. It doesn't mean you can't go back inside if you're needing to feel comfortable again.”
Each piece is made from laser-cut and layered resin, hand assembled, hand painted and released in limited quantities. As all of our designs are lovingly glued, assembled and painted by hand there can be fingerprint marks and very slight variations and blemishes from piece to piece. Due to the hand-mixed nature of the resins in our designs, it is also common and normal to find tiny flecks or bubbles in the resin layers. All in all, this just makes each piece as special and unique as you are.
Brooch clasps are made from plated brass.
Designs come packaged in Erstwilder gift boxes.
Please be aware that resin is akin to ceramic and glass and therefore may be damaged if dropped or knocked. Keep your Erstwilder companion neatly tucked away in this box when not being worn, avoid contact with perfumes, lotions, water and excessive sunlight and you’ll have a trusted friend for years to come.
