Sputnik 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.

This brooch features the background pattern from my Champagne Moment card. The sputnik-like shape that forms the base of the pattern is derived from champagne glasses (the old-fashioned coupes) rotated around a bubble, but quite a few people think it looks like coffee beans. In my view, both beverages are worthy of celebration!

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.

Sputnik brooch comes in a sweet box-like envelope that folds out 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.
