How this was made

I just love Lochcarron of Scotland tartan - they are a historic maker of tartan - whose weaving shed is still operating at Loch Carron on the west coast of Scotland. Drawing on their wonderful designs and inspired by the quality of their fabrics, when designing and making each brooch I curated a selection of four tartans and layered each petal with crin to create a "tutu" like 3D effect. The flowers all feature a "pinked" frayed edge, the tutu effect can be revived if required by a little light steaming, and the back is finished in black felt with an integral jewellery clip. In the images you can see the selection of the tartan layered handmade brooches that are available in this collection - the options are labelled 1 - 8 - please select your preferred design as they are each unique and unrepeatable. UK despatch via Royal Mail First Class Post is included, the brooch is securely packed in tissue paper in a "large letter" posting box. The box can also be gift wrapped and a personalised card added - please include the address of the recipient and the card details in the comments box - if you would like this item sent direct. For non-UK despatches please enquire.
