Echidna by Eliza Rose with Gift Rocklily earrings
Contemporary Feminine - Bespoke Australiana
The echidna steps over mossy rocks to take a sip at the stream. The dusk is cool, the rocks slippery, her quills curled around her protectively.
This brooch features extensive layering to create a realistic depiction of the beautiful shape of an echidna. Echidnas are amazing creatures - with twisted back feet, a poisonous spur, and a little pouch for their newborn puggles. One of only two monotremes alive today (the other being a platypus).
60mm across, 46mm tall.
As the pieces are individually hand crafted in the studio, there may be minor differences, making each one unique. Also, please keep in mind slight colour variations between computer/phone screens.
Pieces are delicate and are to be treated with care. Give your jewellery a wipe with a soft, clean cloth. Do not spray purfumes or other chemicals on the brooch.
All brooches may vary slightly in colour due to acrylic variations. Please note, the brown acrylic is VASTLY different in each piece. Photo is a guide only. Small imperfections can happen in the materials, as is the character of handmade.
Roller brooch on the back for secure hold.
Eliza Rose is an Australian artist, who works in watercolours and oils, capturing the cheeky and sweet characteristics of animals in her detailed work. Wear a piece of art with her line of handmade brooches, each piece carefully created to complement your clothes. Australian flora and fauna particularly interest her, as well as scenery from her surroundings in Brisbane and Murwillumbah. She can be found snapping photos at your local zoo or quiet street, trying to talk to birds that have no interest in talking back, and disappearing for days at a time in her studio.
Originals and prints of her work are held in private collections around the world, and she likes nothing more than to hear stories from people who connect to her art.
