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.
This lovely stylised goldfinch design is cut from FSC certified sustainable birch and the beautiful patterns and colours of its plumage have been painted entirely by hand using eco-friendly Farrow and Ball colours. The back of the brooch is painted a deep teal and both sides are finished with a satin varnish.
Goldfinches are often seen in a group, which is known as a charm.
The goldfinch 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 goldfinches from my park, plus some fun goldfinch facts.
The goldfinch 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.
