New! Pear and Carrot Brooches

There's some new guys in town...

The one problem with my monthly character thing is that often it takes a lot longer for me to get things made, but this time I actually have new matching products in the same month!

Say hello to two new acrylic brooches – Carrot and Pear! I’ve wanted to add some more brooches and these two were my favourites to try next. As always, they come in some fun packaging ready for gifting.

While these turned out great, there are some tiny changes I want to make next time so these are in my shop at a special introductory price of just £2.50! Grab one now as I only have a few and they’ll be £4 next time.
