A unique brooch made from snippets of a vintage French dictionary.

The brooch has been embellished with embroidery, decorative paper, rhinestones and silver anchor charm.

A lovely mix between modern and vintage, this nautical themed anchor brooch will add a certain je ne sais quoi to any outfit, sailor suit or otherwise.

A one of a kind piece, it would be a great addition to any mermaid's jewellery box - and a perfect gift for those with an extraordinary sense of style!

Your very special, one-of-a-kind brooch comes beautifully gift wrapped.

*As this unique brooch is made to order, it will not look exactly like the one shown*

made from:

The base of the brooch is made from an old board book, the front from a page from a vintage French dictionary.

The paper accent has been delicately stitched into using glittery silver thread, and rhinestones and sequins have been added before the whole brooch is coated in varnish, giving the finished product a smooth gloss finish.

The pin back has been securely attached using glue.

The brooch has been lovingly made and treated with varnish, but due to the nature of the materials used please do not wear on outerwear or in the rain.


The brooch is 3cm wide and 4.5cm in length, including the hanging anchor charm.
