BROOCHES

All brooches are based on my original photographs/pictures and are printed on 3mm Neoprene.

The edges are seamed which prevents fraying and enables a certain ‘3D’ effect. The brooch pins are stainless-steel plated and have a safety lock.

Neoprene is actually used for diving suits, but also in the fashion industry. Neoprene is light, flexible and can be washed either by hand or in the machine (30C). You can even go swimming with my jewellery 🙂

Neoprene should NEVER be stored folded (creases remain permanent) or exposed to constant UV radiation (e.g. on a window sill), otherwise, it will become brittle.

Generally, my brooches are approx. 10 to 12 cm wide.

Neoprene is unfortunately very difficult to photograph because the camera shows the ‘pores’ of the material when taking close-up pictures. In nature, the brooches look almost like real flowers/animals!
