Meet Ella the dachshund, so-named because my mum's side of the family had many dachshunds, all named after jazz musicians. This mod madam has been delicately engraved and laser cut from Tasmanian Myrtle (Nothofagus cunninghamii) veneer, which has a lovely grain and a warm, reddish-brown hue. The custom-made packaging can be folded into an easel-style card, perfect for keeping this little treasure on display.
The brooch measures 82mm x 39mm, with a hook-style pin. Sealed with water-based varnish for protection and a natural, matte finish. 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.
