Special Price: Earl Moth

This product is sold. If you'd like something similar, please email me to see what might be possible.

Earl Moth is ready to alight upon your lapel, your backpack, a sweater, any place you need a little friend. Best of all, he does NOT eat wool, although would appreciate a small bread crumb from time to time. Earl Moth was once a lovely earl grey tea tin and has been fashioned entirely by hand from this and other vintage reclaimed tin. Cut from a pattern, riveted together, and then given a special patina for a lovely aged appearance, he is one of a kind and ready to fly home to you.

Please note: Although the moth pins are truly adorable, and are carefully filed and sanded, they are not appropriate for children, as a stray edge could be slightly sharp. Due to their weight, these brooches are not appropriate for wear on very fine fabrics such as silk, gauze, orĀ  extra tissue-weight cottons.

Special: Earl is one of my early prototypes, and as such he is extra sweet and collectible. He also has his pinback affixed with a special and highly permanent putty, rather than riveted. It’s not quite as perfect in terms of craft, and his price has been reduced by $10 accordingly. He is different, but no less sturdy. This only affects the back of the brooch.
