Gridlock retro patterned brooch


What is Etsy?

Etsy is a marketplace where people around the world connect, both online and offline, to make, sell and buy unique goods.

Etsy provides shopfront and shopping cart functionality for creative folk who sell handcrafted or vintage goods. It's also a community for sellers and buyers.

You can help this monkey to shine by favouriting my shop, MadeByMonkeyshine :)

This brooch features the same pattern as Captain Retro Platypus. I’ve designed this range of simple retro shapes for those who like my patterns but might not want to wear them in animal form. They’re also a bit of a nod to the mid-century modern movement, of which I am particularly enamoured.

The custom-made packaging can be folded into an easel-style card or stand, perfect for keeping this little treasure on display.

Made from Tasmanian Myrtle veneer, which has a beautiful warm, reddish-brown hue.

Please note that every sheet of veneer is unique and, as such, your purchase may differ from the example pictured in terms of the natural grain of the wood.

Please ensure that Sputnik is removed from any clothing before washing.
