This Protea flower brooch is made from layers of laser cut acrylic.
The stem and leaves are an olive green marble acrylic that has been layered to create a three-dimensional effect. The flower is a layered ruby-pink colour that has a crackled-marble appearance. The petals have been laser etched and hand painted.

The brooch can be worn at any angle on any side of your body.
It has a silver plated locking pin on the back of the flower, and a second, smaller non-locking pin on the back of the leaf for extra security.

It measures 100mm L x 65mm W (at its widest point) and 7mm H (at its thickest point).

Designed, cut and assembled in Australia.



**PLEASE NOTE**
This brooch has glue and paint applied to it. NO handmade item is perfect and flawless. Your brooch may have tiny amounts of glue or brush strokes on it. If it does, these will be minor. I have a very high standard of quality and won't send anything that is not to my standard.

Marbled and glitter acrylics can differ from piece to piece. It may take on a slightly different pattern or even have tiny flaws. This is unavoidable but it is rarely even noticeable.

Your brooch will come well packed using recyclable paper and cardboard packaging, and as little amount of plastic as possible. I encourage all my customers to reuse their packaging where they can.
All my business cards and backing cards are printed on 100% recycled card.

About Proteas (sourced from https://www.flowerpower.com.au/gardening/all-about-proteas/)

Despite appearances, proteas are not Australian native plants – but they could have been and therein lies a fascinating story stretching back billions of years, to a time when Australia was part of a supercontinent we call Gondwana. Also part of Gondwana was Africa and it’s on this continent that Proteas – and their close relatives leucadendrons and leucospermum – developed their huge diversity of shapes, forms and colours.

Australia split from the Gondwana land mass and over time produced another branch of the protea family. Australian members include waratah, banksia, grevillea, hakea and macadamia.

Across the ocean, in what’s now South America are found other members of the protea family (also called Proteaceae). It’s hypothesised that all these different plants arose from a common protea-like ancestor.
