Brooches and pins are a great way small creative designers can make something people will love without completely breaking the bank. I've made a number of wooden brooches myself (usually adorned with cat faces), and here are a few my other independent makers that I love.
A perfect little bit of Librarian chic for your coat or cardigan, a this book brooch is handmade from wood and paper by Lucie Ellen.
A sentiment I can definitely get down with. For any book nerds out there, take a look around Fable and Black’s Etsy store, as it is a treasure trove of literature-inspired goodies.
I love all of Kate Rowland’s work, but particularly love this Feminist wooden brooch for, well, obvious reasons.
If I could have everything released by Stay Home Club, I’d be a very happy person. I have the t-shirt version of this illustration. Maybe I should get a pin as well.
