A fabulous hand embroidered brooch depicting a "Common Shag" by its nest.
This quirky brooch makes a great gift for bird lovers and brightens up a simple outfit beautifully. It can also be attached to fashion accessories such bags or scarves or why not attach it to the curtains or a cushion for a unique decoration!
I hand craft this brooch in my studio on the Scottish Isle of Lismore out of pure felted wool which I then machine embroider. I have added three vintage shell buttons to represent eggs and a turquoise glass bead for an eye. The brooch is stiffened with fabric stiffener and measures W7cm x H8cm. It is fitted with a Nickel brooch pin and comes in a beautifully packaged Kraft box with a bit of info. about the bird.
This brooch is made from wool and poly thread with a nickel brooch finding, a glass bead eye and three shell beads.
