A sweet handmade brooch made from a watercolour illustration of a little girl flying away on her fairy tale balloon.
This handmade brooch would be perfect as an unusual gift for someone who likes quirky jewellery. It is handmade by me, using a digital print of my own watercolour illustration of this fairy tale inspired character holding onto her red balloon as she flies off to unknown lands! With the balloon fastened to your clothes, the little girl moves beneath freely on her fine chain. This brooch makes a pretty statement on a jacket lapel, dress or jumper, and being so lightweight it wont drag holes in thin fabrics.

Made from shrink plastic and gold plated chain and findings, it has been varnished with a UV protective spray to prevent fading. Please take care not to pop your brooch through the washing machine or get it similarly wet in any other way as it is not guaranteed to survive the adventure (don't worry about a spot of rain though)! When storing your brooch it is best to keep it out of direct sunlight, and ideally in it's own bag/box to prevent scratching or marking from other items.
