The brooch measures 50mm x 36mm, with a hook-style pin.
Laser cut from Tasmanian Myrtle (Nothofagus cunninghamii) veneer, which has a lovely grain and a warm, reddish-brown hue. Sealed with waterbased varnish for protection and a natural, matte finish.
Even though it is varnished, please try not to get Sputnik wet. Please also keep it well away from the washing machine!
I've designed this brooch as a bit of a nod to the mid-century modern movement. The sputnik-like shape that forms the base of the pattern is derived from champagne glasses (the old-fashioned coupes) rotated around a bubble, but quite a few people think it looks like coffee beans. In my view, both beverages are worthy of celebration!
Please note that since every sheet of veneer is unique, your purchase may differ from the example pictured in terms of the natural grain of the wood.
