Erstwilder Brooch • The Kangaroo Yuri
Always jumping forward, toward new opportunities, the Kangaroo is one of the most culturally significant Australian animals. There may be more Kangaroos than people here down under, but our Kangaroo 'Yuri' Brooch is as rare as can be. Best add to cart immediately, before they hop away. This unique and elevated design is a part of our long-awaited collaboration with Aboriginal Artist Melanie Hava. With layered resin and featuring hand-finished details, Melanie's incredible art has been taken off canvas and brought to life as wearable art.
63mm x 80cm (H x W)
Iconic, symbolic, emblematic. I dare you to find an animal that springs to mind faster than me when someone thinks of Australia.
Each piece is made from laser-cut and layered resin, hand assembled, hand painted and released in limited quantities. As all of our designs are lovingly glued, assembled and painted by hand there can be fingerprint marks and very slight variations and blemishes from piece to piece. Due to the hand-mixed nature of the resins in our designs, it is also common and normal to find tiny flecks or bubbles in the resin layers. All in all, this just makes each piece as special and unique as you are.
Brooch clasps are made from plated brass. Earrings hooks and posts are made from high quality, hypoallergenic stainless steel.
Designs come packaged in Erstwilder gift boxes.
