Erstwilder x Art by Melanie Hava - The Kookaburra 'Gunggaga' Brooch
You won't be very happy in this life if you can't laugh at yourself (or with others). The Kookaburra 'Gunggaga' Brooch is the perfect reminder to not take life too seriously. Featuring stunning hand-finished feather details and perched perfectly on the branch of his favourite tree, this stunning design is a part of our long-awaited collaboration with Aboriginal Artist Melanie Hava. Melanie's incredible art has been taken off canvas and brought to life as layered-resin, wearable art, adorn yourself and prepare for the compliments for this King of the Bush to rain down on you.

Why do I love the bush so much? Because my friends are so hilarious. Why else do you think I'm always laughing!
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.
