brooch  - lonesome george the tortoise - hand painted brooch pin
Love this


Lonesome George needs a friend - and perhaps a nice cardigan or top to sit on.

The brooch is made from layers of shrink plastic and felt with a safety brooch back. The image has been hand painted.

It has been all made by hand and so is unique. It has been hand drawn, cut, cooked, hand painted and varnished.

The brooch is approximately 3.5cm in diameter.

George will be carefully wrapped and posted first class.

-This brooch is delicate. Please handle with care and keep away from water, perfume and hairspray.
-This brooch is not suitable for young children.
-Due to the nature of shrink plastic, there may be tiny imperfections in the finish.
-The brooch you receive may differ slightly from photograph.
-Colours of brooch may differ to screen colour.
