BRAND NEW 'I believe in unicorns' Brooch

A few weeks ago, I noticed a few lovely brooches / pins on Etsy where I have a shopfront too, I love browsing on Etsy , there are so many talented artists and makers there, and I have found some wonderful gifts for friends and for myself!

These little brooches really caught my eye, and set me thinking that I could add a brooch to my collection in time for Christmas with one of my unicorns on, to begin with, I have plans for more designs too. If you know my work and read this blog regularly, then you will know I am a big fan of unicorns and they feature often in my illustrations. So I decided to go with one of my most popular designs which is available as a print and a card in my shop 'I believe in unicorns'  it seemed to lend itself well to the brooch idea.

I got in touch with a very friendly and helpful company called Made by Cooper, who make these lovely pins, and were able to put what I had in mind into production, and now I have these beautiful little enamel unicorn pin brooches , and they are now available to buy on my website.

They are proving very popular so far, below are some pictures of the brooch, and you can get your right here they make ideal stocking fillers.

Take some unicorn magic along with you each day with this little brooch 

The back has a strong pin and a simple clutch fastening to secure it to your clothing.

The brooch comes mounted on a card with the same unicorn on, taken from my original painting.

My daughter wearing hers, which she is very pleased with! A few of  my friends have bought them for their children, but they are a great gift for grown ups too, I love mine, and you're never too old to believe in unicorns!

Dorset Team Etsy Fair......2 more sleeps!

I'm getting more and more excited as Saturday draws near, as the 3rd of December is the day of the Dorset Team Etsy Christmas fair at the Allendale Centre in Wimborne, open from 10am until 4pm.

It is lovely being part of the Dorset Etsy team, I love running my own business, but it means I spend time going it alone. Being part of a 'team' connects me to a wonderful Etsy community of other very talented and creative people, who are all coming together on Saturday. The Allendale centre will be buzzing on Saturday with creativity, happiness and community, and there'll be no better place to start your Christmas shopping.

I'll be in great company, selling along side other members of the Dorset Etsy team, such as The Cat in the Shoe with her beautiful handmade textile sculptures,  Nicolette Dawn with her amazing wire animal sculptures, Love From Hetty and Dave with their lovely hand crafted leather jewellery and accessories, and Little Vagaries with their magical illustrated products, to name a few.

On top of finding some truly original and hand made items for some gift ideas, you know that you will be making some one's day by buying their products. 

You can check out all the information on the fair on the Facebook page here.  

I'll be there with all my hand illustrated cards, prints, colouring books and my brand new 'I believe in unicorns' brooches and limited edition print at a special price! Take a look below........Hope to see you there :)

Limited edition giclee print 'Into the Blossom'

If you can't make it, you can always order from my Etsy shop - free UK shipping and it'll be with you in plenty of time for the big day.
