Madam Zag Platypus 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.

This cheeky Duck-Billed Platypus is engraved with a zippy chevron pattern. Some say her bill's too long, but that's how I wanted to depict her: elongated, elegant and a little mod — but she doesn't really quack!

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 lovely grain and 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.

Do take care to ensure that Madam Zag is removed from any clothing before washing. Unusually for a platypus, she doesn’t like to get wet!
