The brooches are made of metal and enamel and are made per design with different techniques (hard enamel, soft enamel, some brooches are painted afterwards with epoxy resin and other designs are polished). Due to the artisanal process, minor irregularities in the paint may be visible. This is part of the character of the product. However, we try to keep this to a minimum. Each brooch is checked and inspected before shipment, so you always receive a high-quality brooch. If you are not satisfied with your brooch, please contact us.

The brooches are secured by means of a pin closure (safety pin), a small or a large magnet. Do not use the closure with a magnet in combination with a pacemaker.

Do you have a dress with a jersey sash from the collection, but is it hard to make a nice bow? Follow step by step the pictures and make the bow, there where you want it. You can also tie the sash once more around your waist for a smaller bow.


Now you have the basis for the bow. As a final step you can perfect your bow by pulling it slightly. Small loops ensure they have more volume. You can also vary the position of the bow. Asymmetrical left or right of your body, or on the back for a classic image. At the boutique ithe sash is separately availabe in different colors.



You don’t prefer a bow? Turn the sash over each other once (figure 2) and carry it simple and elegant at your side.
