“Sometimes since I've been in the garden I've looked up through the trees at the sky and I have had a strange feeling of being happy as if something was pushing and drawing in my chest and making me breathe fast. Magic is always pushing and drawing and making things out of nothing. Everything is made out of magic, leaves and trees, flowers and birds, badgers and foxes and squirrels and people. So it must be all around us. In this garden - in all the places.” ― Frances Hodgson Burnett
Wear the entrance to your own secret garden near to your heart with this Secret Garden Gate pin. The old weathered fence boards, cut from copper and hammer textured, are soldered together to create the well loved door. A small bird perched atop a wandering vine, pierced from brass, alludes to the magic beyond the gate. Two nickel lapel pins allow the brooch to be worn with medium to heavy weight fabrics. A dark patina accentuates the wooden textures and the entire piece is sealed with lacquer.
This pin was created completely by hand in copper and brass using traditional silversmithing techniques.
Your pin will arrive in a small jewelry box, carefully packed with ethically foraged forest finds and recycled shipping materials.
This item is not a toy and is not recommended for children. All works come from a tobacco free, one dog home.

All made to order listings require at least 2 to 3 weeks for production time, however there is a 10% rush fee if you need to expedite an order.
Please contact me directly before placing an expedited order to make arrangements. I create all of my work by hand, from scratch and it is a time consuming process, therefore not all orders are eligible to be rushed.
