Inspired by watching the amazing variety of birdlife in my local city park, I have chosen some of my favourites to create the Park Life collection - a range of hand painted bird brooches.
The nuthatch is a very flexible tree acrobat and also a visitor to garden bird feeders.
This lovely bird has been the basis for this stylised nuthatch brooch design, cut from FSC certified sustainable birch and painted entirely by hand using eco-friendly Farrow and Ball colours. The back of the brooch is painted a beautiful deep reddish chestnut and both sides are finished with a satin varnish.
The nuthatch brooch measures 6cm wide and like all Shark Alley designs, it is light and easy to wear.
The brooch comes beautifully packaged, with its own display card, and also includes a cute little card featuring a photo of one of the nuthatches from my park, plus some fun nuthatch facts. The packaging is recyclable
The nuthatch brooch ships free to the UK.
* Please note, each brooch is painted by hand and may differ slightly from the one pictured here. It may also include brush stroke textures.
