Glow in the Dark Ghost Brooches

It’s my birthday today, and to celebrate I’m releasing my newest ghost brooch variant – glow in the dark!

I had a test one made last month and I knew I should really launch them in Autumn when the days are shorter, but I couldn’t wait! They really do glow in dark, emitting a spooky green glow once you charge them up in sunshine or near a lightbulb. I hope you and your ghost will have fun over the summer at festivals and clubs and other nighttime happenings.

They look totally normal in daylight so it will be a fun surprise for everyone when you wear it. I couldn’t possibly deny anyone a glow in the dark ghost brooch so these aren’t limited edition, but I only have a small batch to start with. You can pick one up in my shop or on Etsy, and if you wish me a happy birthday at checkout, I will include a free gift. That applies to any order, today only.

PS. Because of the Easter holidays, I won’t be shipping orders until Thursday. I know I said otherwise last weekend but I changed my mind. It’s my birthday and Easter so I’m having a holiday!
